A TRUCK driver has prevented a large scale disaster when he moved his burning truck away from a busy shopping centre.

The Northern Star reports Fire & Rescue NSW Alstonville deputy captain, Paul Fairfull, said crews were called to the truck fire at the Alstonville Plaza this morning.

"The truck driver did a good job, he moved the vehicle prior to us arriving to get it away from the buildings," he said.

Witness Josie Murphy said the truck driver did a great job to move the burning vehicle.

"No one was hurt; the truck driver saw the fire and jumped in the cab to roll it forward away from the building/Coles," she said.

"There were a lot of frightened elderly people, very dramatic for Alstonville."
