Traffic halts after caravan bursts into flames
TRAFFIC is backed up on the Ipswich Motorway after a caravan burst into flames near the Logan Motorway drive off ramp in Gailes.
Gutted by fire, the charred frame of a caravan was visible to motorists driving eastbound this morning, after fireys fought to extinguish the blaze.
A Queensland Fire and Emergency spokesperson said two crews battled the fire, the first crew arriving just before 9.45am on Monday morning.
“There was a large amount of smoke,” the spokesperson said.
“We were dampening down the hot spots and the fire was out by 10.28am.”

He said lanes had since reopened.
