Three fire crews were called to the highway about 11.30pm on Thursday night as fire swept through the prime mover’scabin and front trailer.

A Rural Fire Service spokesman said a backhoe was called in, with the destroyed B-double skull dragged clear of the scene.

It was carrying non-dangerous cargo including car parts and potting mix, the spokesman said.

The rear trailer escaped with only some heat damage.

A Fire and Rescue NSW spokesman said 180 litres of diesel was decanted from the vehicle.

Passing driver Dave Whitman shot video before stopping to help at the scene.

He said the driver managed to escape with just his bag before the vehicle’s cab was wreathed in fire.

Southbound lanes of the highway were closed several hours into Friday morning.​
