New cars go up in flames after car transporter catches fire on M8
THIS is the dramatic scene on the M8 yesterday after a car transporter caught fire.
The incident occurred just before 5pm on the M8.
The vehicle caught fire between Junction 16 Rathcormac and Junction 15 Fermoy.
Emergency services rushed to the scene, and no injuries have been reported.
Traffic became very heavy northbound for a time earlier this evening as the road was closed as a result.
The road has since re-opened and traffic has returned to normal.
An investigation is ongoing to establish the cause of the fire.
