After the fire was discovered the truck driver dumped part of the burning timber and cardboard load onto the road so firefighters could isolate the fire quickly.

Crews from St Marys and Mount Druitt extinguished the fire while a ladder platform vehicle was on standby as a precaution.

Firefighters treated the male driver with oxygen for smoke inhalation until NSW Ambulance arrived on the scene.
