FedEx truck up in flames

A FedEx semi-trailer truck caught fire and became engulfed in flames in the early hours of Friday morning. 

The truck was parked in a compound on Acland Road, just off Highway 97, when it caught fire at approximately 4 a.m.

A man who was driving by on the highway, smelled the burning and drove by to investigate. While there were no emergency crews there yet, he said he could hear their sirens coming. 

Another witness said only the cab was on fire, but heard two separate explosions approximately one minute apart.

There is no word yet on the cause of the blaze.
