FIREFIGHTERS are unsure what caused a lorry to catch fire in March this morning.

One crew from March and one crew from Chatteris were called to the blazing 7.5 tonne lorry behind March Hire Centre in Melbourne Avenue.

Crews used hose reels and a hydrant to extinguish the fire and a ground monitor to cool the cylinders.

They returned to their stations by 5.15am.
