FIREFIGHTERS from Huercal-Overa were called out on two occasions to deal with a lorry fire on the motorway near the town. The lorry, carrying a large cargo of vegetables, caught fire while it was travelling on the A7. The driver called the emergency services who attended the scene.
Later in the day a second fire broke out under the vehicle as it was being towed away and the fire service was called out again. A section of the road was closed for most of the morning.
