EMERGENCY crews have rushed to Brisbane's south after a truck caught fire on a busy road near a service station.

The cab and rear of the truck caught fire on Mount Gravatt-Capalaba road in Wishart, where fire fighters were called just before 10.15am.

The driver escaped with only "bumps and bruises".

Three crews attacked the flames and were able to extinguish the fire just after 10.30am but remained on the scene to keep an eye on things.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said paramedics took the 35-year-old male driver to the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Hospital in a stable condition to be treated for minor injuries he suffered getting out of the cab.
