Trolley bus wires catch fire, fall on traffic in Burnaby

Trolley wires catch fire

Downed trolley bus wires sparked and caught fire in Burnaby early Friday.

Flames were seen where the lines went under a pedestrian overpass on Kingsway near Swanguard Stadium, on the Burnaby-Vancouver border, CTV News reports.

The incident halted traffic as firefighters were unable to put out the fire as the wires were still live.

The wires came down on passing cars, but TransLink says there were no reported injuries. 

The road has since reopened, and Coast Mountain Bus Company is assessing the damage.
