Truck engulfed in flames near Melbourne Airport
A truck has burst into flames on the side of a road near Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport.
Emergency services were called to the Western Ring Road near Melrose Drive about 5am following reports of a vehicle that had caught on fire.
Dashcam footage from the scene shows the front driver’s cab of the truck entirely consumed in flames.
Three lanes were initially blocked on the Western Ring Road near Melrose Drive as a result of the blaze.
It is understood the fire is now under control, however it remains unclear whether the driver was injured in the incident.
Motorists in the areas had been advised to expect delays, although all lanes have now re-opened.
It is expected to be some time before a heavy haulage vehicle is able to remove the truck from the scene.
