A Glencore vehicle was found abandoned by police and the driver appears to have been picked up by someone else.

Police said it appeared like the driver was driving on the rim for a few kilometres, sparking a grass fire which authorities were worried could get out of control.

Police are on scene and the Rural Fire Service have been requested to attend.
