Car fire on the M1 Motorway

A car burst into flames on the M1 Motorway at about midday on Tuesday, April 20.

The car was in the southbound emergency breakdown lane, just under Dog Trap Rd, Ourimbah, and was well alight when crews arrived from Warnervale and Narara Rural Fire Brigades as well as Fire and Rescue NSW Berkeley Vale.

They extinguished the fire and stayed at the scene until the completely burnt out vehicle cooled before it could be safely removed by an RMS tow truck.

No one in the vehicle was injured and traffic on the M1 quickly resumed normal flow with minimal disruption.
