Search is on for senders who lost mail in truck fire

AUSTRALIA Post has advised they will alert senders their mail was destroyed in the truck fire at Grafton.

It is believed no local mail was on board, as the truck was headed from Brisbane to Sydney, but an Australia Post spokesman apologised for the inconvenience.

"Australia Post apologises for any inconvenience caused and is notifying known senders of the incident," the spokesman said.

"We will deliver any recoverable parcels to customers as soon as possible."

The cause of the fire is yet to be determined, but the spokesman said a full investigation would be launched to find the cause.

The driver reportedly used a small fire extinguisher to try to put out the fire.

If anyone is concerned about their mail, phone the Australia Post Customer Contact Centre on 13 13 18 for more information.
