A fire service spokesman said the crash had involved three vehicles, two of which were on fire.
A fire crew each from Ixworth and Elsmwell attended and used hose reels to tackle the flames.
Both lanes were initially blocked, but one has now re-opened.
It is understood the fire caused some damage to the asphalt in the second of the two lanes, meaning the lane has remained closed.
Officers are still at the scene.
