Lorry blaze on M2 in Antrim causes traffic disruption
Early morning traffic was disrupted on the M2 motorway on Thursday after a lorry went on fire.
Four fire engines were involved in dealing with the ablaze articulated lorry on the northbound on-slip at J6 Rathbeg, Co Antrim.
Crews were called out at around 9.15am and brought it under control just before 10.30am.
The cause of the fire was “accidental ignition”, a spokesperson for the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service said.
Part of the motorway was closed for a time but has since reopened.
