A car caught fire on a Sydney highway, forcing the closure of all urban roads and causing major delays.

The fire caused the chaos of the morning passengers on the M7 near Elizabeth Drive in Cecil Hills, southwest of Sydney.

You could see smoke billowing from the flames as huge flames engulfed the car and emergency crews arrived on the scene.

The northbound lanes closed when firefighters battled the flames, causing traffic to recede for nine kilometers.
