Lorry filled with tinned fish goes up in flames on the M6
Lorry of tinned fish erupts into flames on M6 causing three hour delay
A lorry full of tinned fish burst into flames on the M6, causing the motorway to close for three hours. The incident also caused congestion on local roads. Highways England alerted drivers via Twitter at 2.35am today (July 2) to say that all traffic had been temporarily stopped on the M6 southbound between J16 A500 (Stoke-On-Trent/ Crewe ) and J15 A500 D Road (Stoke-On-Trent) while the blaze was tackled.
Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service also confirmed on social media at 3.30am this morning to confirm that three engines were at the scene where firefighters were making ‘good progress’ in tackling the blaze. At around 5.50am, a spokesperson for CMPG said: “Not the ‘hot’ summer night D Unit were hoping for. This was the second of two separate vehicle fires we attended on the network with @StaffsFire and @HighwaysWMIDS.
M6 currently closed at J16 S/B, diversion in place.”
