Border tensions have risen since the Taliban's return to power last year, with Pakistan alleging militant groups are planning attacks from Afghan soil.
The Taliban deny harbouring Pakistani militants, but are also infuriated by a fence Islamabad is erecting along their 2,700-kilometre (1,600-mile) border, drawn up in colonial times and known as the Durand Line.
Each side blamed the other for Thursday's fighting at the Chaman-Spin Boldak crossing.
"The border remains closed for passengers as well as trade," a Pakistani security official told AFP.

"A delegation of tribal notables and religious leaders has been formed to hold talks with the Taliban," he added.
An Afghan official said talks so far had been fruitless.
"They are trying to speak again... but if nothing happens then the issue will be discussed on a higher level," the Kandahar governor's spokesman, Mahmoud Azaam, told AFP.
An AFP reporter saw hundreds of people waiting at Chaman on the Pakistan side for the border to reopen.
Thousands usually cross every day, including traders, Afghans seeking medical treatment in Pakistan, and people visiting relatives.
A security official at the southwest Chaman border, who asked not to be named, said, "This morning a mob of some 400 unruly commuters tried to cross the gate forcefully. They threw stones, which forced us to use tear gas."
The situation on the ground could not immediately be verified as no government officials were available to confirm the fall of a town in Spin Boldak district in Kandahar province situated next to the Durand Line border with Pakistan.
Officials have said that the task of moving 50,000 metric tonnes of wheat to Afghanistan would require 5,000 trucks via Pakistan. The logistics suggest that Indian trucks would require the wheat to be unloaded and loaded again into Afghan trucks at Zero Point on the Wagah-Attari border.
The Pakistani Taliban — known as Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan or TTP — are a separate group but allied with the Afghan Taliban, who seized power in their country last August, as the US and NATO troops were in the final stages of their pullout from Afghanistan.
In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs affirmed the Kingdom's total rejection of the serious violations of international law by the Israeli occupation forces, and called on the international community to take responsibility to "end the occupation..."
