Superintendent Stewart Alexander of NSW Fire and Rescue said: “Upon arrival of Fire and Rescue NSW and local RFS units, we found a truck well-alight that has had a collision with another parked truck.

“There’s major damage to the truck that’s been on fire and we’re working to extinguish that at this time.

“Fortunately, the driver of that truck has suffered only minor injuries and we’ll continue to work away here until we get this road cleared.”

Traffic diversions were put in place as firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze, with just the smouldering, charred remains of the man’s truck left behind.

The driver was treated on the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics and a crime scene was established before he was taken to Albury Base Hospital.

Mr Alexander said the structure of the truck, which was carrying a load of frozen chicken, was “quite combustible” due to the insulation it had on-board.

“We’re applying a lot of water and we’ve also got a specialist appliance coming from Wagga Wagga to assist us in doing fire extinguishment,” he said.

“It’s a very challenging fire fight due to the compacted nature of how these chickens are stored and also the structure of the trailer that’s carrying them.

“There’s no water mains out here, so we’re having to transport water to the scene.”

He also said the man is very lucky to have walked away from the blaze with minimal injuries.

“(He is) very, very fortunate, the driver of the truck. As you will have seen, the (truck) sustained major damage both due to fire and the collision,” he said.

“He’s’ very fortunate indeed.”

Southbound lanes on the Hume Highway were expected to be closed for a number of hours today until the scene was cleared up by emergency services.
