Australia 

A FIRE engulfing a mobile crane at Rhodes, in Sydney’s west, is causing slight traffic delays. The fire on Homebush Bay Drive started just before 5am (AEST) today.

“Police are in attendance to divert traffic around it. It will cause some traffic problems until the area is cleared,” a spokesman from the NSW fire brigade said.

He said four engines were in attendance, but the fire was not serious.

“We have four pumps at work because we didn’t have a hydrant there,” the spokesman said.

“It (the fire) may have looked bigger than it is because there was a lack of water.”
