A truck on fire in Greenmount has caused traffic chaos on Great Eastern Highway.

It is understood traffic is currently reduced to one lane eastbound between Old York Road and Waylen Road after both eastbound lanes were closed earlier in the morning.

A Fire and Emergency Services Authority spokeswoman said firefighters were called to the scene just before 8am after the fire started in the engine of the truck.

The blaze was extinguished within about 15 minutes.

Main Roads is advising motorists use other routes if possible or allow plenty of extra travel time.
