A van on the N7 burst into flames this morning.

Smoke billowing from the vehicle caused some traffic disruption due to poor visibility.

"Reports of a van on fire on the N7/ Naas Rd inbound before J4 Rathcoole. Delays from there to Newlands Cross," tweeted an AA Roadwatch spokesperson.

Aidan Lonergan tweeted the attached picture with the post: "Van on fire inbound on the N7 past Kildare. Visibility poor".

Road authorities have warned commuters to expect delays because of the incident.
