CFA members from ten different brigades attended to a call on the Hume Freeway northbound near Byawatha.
The truck, carrying breakfast cereal amongst other items, was alight between Boralma-Rutherglen Road and Robbins Road. It was reported at 5:26PM last night, creating quite a spectacle for those on their way home from work.

CFA’s involvement wasn’t complete until after midnight.
