A lorry fire caused the northbound carriageway of the M1 to close for several hours.
Emergency services were called to the motorway between junctions 37 and 38 at Barnsley after the lorry carrying hay bales caught fire at about 2.10pm on Saturday.
The northbound carriageway and the junction 37 slip road were closed while fire crews and traffic officers deal with the blaze.
Three appliances were at the scene and fire crews used foam to dampen down the fire, and a forklift to remove the bales from the lorry.
A South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue spokesman said the amount of smoke had caused the carriageway to close. It later reopened at about 1.30am.
No injuries have been reported.
