Vehicle fire on Connector

A semi truck burst into flames this afternoon on Highway 97C.

The photo was taken at approximately 1:30 p.m. near the Brenda Mines turnaround on the Okanagan Connector between Kelowna and Merritt.

The vehicle appears to be a truck from the Winnipeg Motor Express, a transportation and shipping company based in Manitoba.

We’ll have more details if they become available.

Here's a video of the incident by Joe Flood.
