Garbage truck driver dumps rubbish on road after it bursts into flames

A garbage truck driver has been forced to dump a load of rubbish on the road after it burst into flames on the Gold Coast this morning.

Just after 9.45am, fire crews were called to Precision Drive at Molendinar after reports of a fire.

On arrival, crews found a mountain of rubbish fully engulfed in flames on the road.


Firies quickly worked to extinguish the flames, with the fire under control by 10.00am.

The rubbish is expected to be removed from the road shortly.
