Crane truck blaze


UP to 16 CFA trucks, police and the EPA attended a crane truck fire at Tyabb, 1pm, Wednesday 18 March.

The blaze began when diesel from a faulty hose ignited and began burning the cab and spreading throughout the truck at the corner of Frankston-Flinders Road and Western Port Highway.

EPA crews set up a hazmat site to prevent fuel leaking into water courses.

Four semi-trailers and another larger crane truck arrived to hoist the blackened wreck onto a low loader. The driver was not injured.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at
