Just before 4am, Police and CFS crews attended the scene on the Eyre Highway at Coorabie, about 100 kilometres west of Ceduna, after reports that a road train carrying hazardous substances was on fire.

The driver of the truck escaped without injury and was able to unhook one of the trailers, however the Eyre Highway is currently closed in both directions while the CFS try to contain the fire.

Police are urging drivers to be patient and seek direction from emergency services.
