At 2.20pm this afternoon in Place Ste Devote in Monaco, a Grand Prix truck parked in the middle of the roundabout caught fire. The truck’s 4 tyres exploded and filled the air with thick black smoke. Within 10 minutes the fire brigade arrived and got the fire under control.
The fire is now out but the road and tarmac have both been very badly burned and the truck has sunk into the tarmac with the heat.
It is unclear if there was anybody trapped in the vehicle. Further updates when available.
