Truck fire at the Nullarbor Roadhouse- 5 December

Just after 9am this morning, the CFS was alerted to a truck fire at the Nullarbor Roadhouse.

Volunteers from Ceduna and our Far West Brigade arrived at the Roadhouse to find two of the truck's trailers completely destroyed, with a third still burning.

Fortunately, the truck was able to be moved away from the fuel pumps and is causing no access issues to the highway or the Roadhouse.

It's believed the fire was caused by the truck's brakes overheating.

The truck was carrying loads of timber which have been destroyed, causing around $350,000 damage.

Crews will remain on the scene to ensure the fire is completely extinguished.
