The AP-7 motorway in the Barcelona area of Olèrdola was closed to traffic on Wednesday, as fire fighters tackled a blaze on a truck that was travelling on the road.
Emergency services were forced to stop traffic in both directions at 13:45 whilst they extinguished the flames, reopening one southbound lane 30 minutes later, reopening a second lane at 15:15.
The fire had spread to neighbouring vegetation resulting in four fire crews attending whilst traffic backed up for 3 kilometres.
Aside from this incident, with increased temperatures heading towards the summer, much of the country is on alert for the spread of forest fires, with motorists also asked to be vigilant at all times and not throwing anything from the vehicle, such as a lit cigarette or even rubbish, which can increase the risk of fire.
