No one was injured in the crash and the fire was extinguished within about 10 minutes, an MFB spokeswoman told the Herald Sun.

Despite the fire being brought under control in a short period of time, the crash caused significant delays for motorists travelling outbound on the Monash Freeway.

One outbound lane remains closed and inbound traffic is slow approaching the scene from Ferntree Gully Rd.

VicRoads said motorists should use Dandenong Road to avoid the closure.
