Flaming Street Trash Forces Traffic Headaches At Burleigh Waters

Motorists have had to dodge a pile of burning rubbish at Burleigh Waters this morning.

It's believed the flaming trash may have fallen from a garbage truck around 5:10am on Thursday into the middle of the road at the corner of Christine Avenue and Bermuda Street.

Fire crews were called in and were faced with some difficulty to put the flames out, with police forced to close the northbound lanes of Bermuda Street.

They managed to extinguish the blaze after about two hours, with the trash loaded into a skip bin and taken away.
