Truck fire on Coquihalla
Photo: Contributed - Tony Lopes
One of the southbound lanes on the Coquihalla highway is closed this morning due to a vehicle fire near Othello Road, north of Hope.
DriveBC is reporting the slow lane is blocked by a smouldering semi truck, but the fast lane is open.
Traffic control is on site to ensure southbound vehicles keep moving, but there is no estimated time for the other lane to open.
There is also limited visibility in both directions due to the smoke, so motorists are advised to drive safely and watch for flaggers and traffic congestion.
