A truck is on fire and blocking a lane of traffic on State Highway 1 near Wellington this morning.
A Fire Service spokesman said the truck was burning fiercely when firefighters arrived at the scene, just south of Plimmerton, about 5.30am.
No-one was injured, but one lane of south-bound traffic was blocked.
It was not clear at this stage what had caused the fire.
Police were also at the scene.
