A lorry engulfed in fire on the A2 has blocked the Dartford Crossing
A lorry fire blocked the Dartford Crossing this morning.
The heavy goods vehicle caught alight just after 10am on the A2 slip road to the M25.
A spokesman from Kent Fire and Rescue said: "We were called at 10.22am to reports that a 32-tonne lorry had caught fire between the cab and lorry of the vehicle.
"It was on the fast flyover between the A2 and the M25 anti-clockwise.
"The lorry contained loose tarmac and we used two hose reels of foam to mask the fire.
"We extinguished it and the vehicle was 20 per cent destroyed by fire.
"There were no reports of any injuries."
Kent Police Dartford also tweeted saying their officers were at the scene assisting the fire service.
There is queuing traffic London-bound at the Darenth Interchange and congestion up to the Northfleet turn off.
Traffic can still join the M25 from the A2 roundabout, but there is congestion up to Bluewater on the A2.
