Fire and Rescue crews have been dealing with a van on fire on the A1 this evening (Wednesday).
It happened on the southbound carriageway near junction 47 Allerton Park at about 6.30pm.
Station Manager Tony Walker said heavy rain was making the road hazardous due to all the surface water.
Crews from Harrogate and Wetherby dealt with the incident.
A North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said: “On arrival crews confirmed a small fire in the engine compartment was out on arrival.
“Advice was given to the owner.”
