Local resident Tim Jones took these pictures of a truck that caught fire last night around 11:30pm, startling residents as the tyres exploded. The truck, surrounded by other trucks in the RTA check area close to the Narrabri Rd turn off (locally known as the dog trap), was extensively damaged. Fire services were on the scene in minutes and quickly extinguished the flames that were threatening other trucks and had caught grass alight.
The driver was unharmed and stayed the night in a motel in town.
