The road starting at the Pullover Roundabout is open again after firefighters dealt with a lorry fire this evening.
The vehicle was carrying 20 tonnes of car batteries, and the blaze is understood to have started inside the cargo.
Four fire engines and the environmental protection unit from King's Lynn and West Walton were called to the scene at around 4.15pm.
Mick Whitby, operational support officer from King's Lynn South, said: 'The driver was able to continue his journey afterwards as the fire was contained within the trailer itself.'
At one point, police closed the A17 to help with traffic control but the road was reopened again by 6.30pm.
