Vehicle ablaze alongside highway

Rural Fire Service crews from Sandy Flat and Deepwater converged on a vehicle on fire alongside New England Highway near Pyes Creek Rd south of Tenterfield around 1pm on Wednesday.

Northern Tablelands RFS’ Scott Keelan said police were already in attendance were fire crews arrived, and there was no sign of an accident or occupants.

Traffic was slowed in both directions until emergency service personnel cleared the scene, around an hour after the alarm was raised.
