"The cause of the vehicle fire has not been confirmed," OPP Community Safety Officer Stephanie Belec told CTV News in an email Monday afternoon.
Belec said some cattle died in the incident.
"We're urging motorists to be cautious while driving through the area, as there are still outstanding cattle," said Belec. "I cannot confirm a number."
