UPDATE: The southbound carriageway of the A404 in Marlow between Marlow Junction and the Bisham Roundabout has been re-opened following a lorry fire.
One lane was closed slowing traffic after fire crews were called to the fire at 5.30am this morning.
Police re-opened the road just before 10am.
Two crews from High Wycombe were called at 5.30am this morning following reports the front wheel on a lorry carrying empty milk bottles on the southbound carriageway had blown out.
About 40 minutes later the blow out combusted, setting fire to the lorry cab and part of the load.
Firefighters spent two hours using one hose reel and a compressed air foam system to put out the flames.
