RV cleared, highway opens

UPDATED: 5:20 P.M.

The highway is now cleared of the incident and traffic is moving through freely, according to DriveBC.


ORIGINAL: 3:29 P.M.

The Coquihalla Highway is closed in the northbound lane this afternoon due to an RV that has caught fire.

The RV caught fire at approximately 2:35 p.m. Thursday and shut down the highway at Exit 221, north of the Great Bear Snowshed.

A picture submitted to Castanet shows the back of the RV fully engulfed and a small Hyundai attached to the back of it.

DriveBC has no detour suggestions available and has no estimated time of reopening the highway.
