Truck fire - St Andrews

Published: 07 Dec 2020 01:21pm

Just before 1.30pm, a number of Fire and Rescue NSW crews from across Sydney's South West were called to a truck fire on the Hume Highway, St Andrews.

Upon arrival crews found the fire from the truck had jumped the road barrier and had spread to nearby grass land.

Firefighters were able to bring the truck fire under control just before 2pm, whilst firefighters from the NSW Rural Fire Service were called to provide extra resources in containing the grass fire.

Both fires have since been extinguished however emergency services are still on scene to clean up a gravel spill which occurred as a result of the truck fire.

The Hume Highway is partially closed Northbound and motorists are advised to avoid the area.

No injuries have been reported.
