The blaze was well established by the time a crew from Wigan fire station arrived at the scene in Richmond Hill (not Orpington Street as previously described) in Pemberton, at 11.30pm on Sunday May 28.
The flames were a threat to another vehicle parked close by and a nearby building but the firefighters, using high pressure hose reels, managed to prevent them from spreading.
Crew manager Simon Pheasant said that they also stopped the fire from engulfing the HGV’s trailer.
Investigators were returning to the scene this morning to ascertain what caused the blaze.
