Truck carrying hay bales on fire

A TRUCK was destroyed by fire at Ridgelands this morning.

A Queensland Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said the truck was carrying a load of hay bales, which caught fire.

The driver was not injured but the blaze destroyed the truck and started a grass fire in surrounding scrub off Garnant Road.

Firefighters quickly had the blaze under control before it threatened property.
