Truck fire causes traffic woes for motorists

Cross-city traffic snarls for motorists have cleared after a truck caught fire on CityLink this afternoon.

The fire began about 3.30pm near Yarra Boulevard at Burnley, forcing the closure of all inbound lanes on CityLink's Southern link.

But just before 5pm, the lanes reopened when the fire was extinguished and the site cleared.

The truck's two containers were empty, which an MFB spokeswoman said meant the clean-up was expected to be quicker than expected.
