Paramus NJ, Route 17 was closed in both direction on Wednesday after a tractor trailer caught fire in front of Pier 1 across from the Fireplace at the Ridgewood Avenue exit. There may have been interruption in telephone, cable and electrical service. Wires were down causing heavy delays . It appears the truck careened off the highway hitting a utility pole.
