Update: As of 10am, the trailer had been cleared and police

Elgin Avenue is closed to traffic after a cargo trailer caught fire in the road near the entrance to Cricket Square this morning.
After receiving an emergency call at 7.18am, three fire engines responded to the blaze, which consumed a trailer bearing the logo of a local landscaping company.
Firefighters doused the burning trailer, its contents and nearby pavement with water and fire retardant foam, as passersby looked on.
The Cayman Islands Fire Service had the fire under control by 7.45am, and is now investigating the cause of the fire. Elgin Avenue remains closed pending a National Roads Authority assessment and police decision.
