M1 traffic stalled after grass fire breaks out on median strip

There are serious traffic delays on the M1 this morning, after a grass fire broke out in the middle of the motorway.

It’s understood a cigarette butt might be to blame, after vegetation lit up between north and southbound lanes around 8.00am.

Motorists report the blaze is burning right near exit 54, through Coomera.

The spectacle is creating delays in both directions, with the southbound delays looking particularly bad.

One crew is currently on scene.

More to come.
