BRUSSELS – On the E 19 towards Antwerp, 2 trucks caught fire after an accident near Sint-Job. Six fire-brigades were called out to try to extinguish the meters-high flames.

They were unable to prevent the trucks from being destroyed by the fire.

The accident has caused severe traffic problems. The E 19 was completely closed off and traffic had to exit from the motorway at Sint-Job. The traffic towards the Netherlands had to make use of the hard shoulder.

Clearing the road is expected to take a long time as the asphalt caught fire too in some spots.
