Truck fire closes road | GALLERY

The Lachlan Valley Way was closed in both directions this afternoon (Tuesday, May 6) after a truck carrying a load of hay caught fire.

It is not clear how the truck, travelling south eight kilometres from Gooloogong, caught fire however local fire brigades and farmers were on hand to help extinguish the blaze. 

Cowra Council workers set up traffic diversions at the intersection of Lachlan Valley Way and Grenfell Road with motorists warned to delay their trips.

Full details tomorrow.
