BUNDABERG police are advising there may be future delays this morning on the Isis Hwy between Appletree Creek and Bundaberg.
Around 9pm last night, just north of the Cordalba turn-off, a B double combination truck carrying a full load of sugar caught fire.
The load is currently off the highway; however the section of road will be closed at some stage this morning while the load is removed from the scene.
Traffic controllers are on-scene and will assist with alternate traffic flow. The alternate route to Bundaberg from Childers is via Goodwood Rd.
It is believed the fire started in a wheel bearing.
