Rural Fire Service crew members discovered the van fully engulfed in flames on the highway upon arrival but “luckily no one was inside”.

The fire spread to nearby grass but crews had the blaze extinguished within around half an hour.

Traffic control was in place for around 90 minutes.

Investigations into the cause of the blaze are ongoing.
