SMOKE was found coming from the wheel arch of a large lorry at Poulters Lane in Worthing on Tuesday.
West Sussex Fire and Rescue arrived at the scene at 2.14pm to safely maintain the area. Two water tender ladders were used.
The smoke was believed to be due to a faulty brake system.
A maintenance engineer was in attendance to assess the lorry.
The lorry was eventually escorted by the firefighters to a nearby vehicle workshop.
