Crews cleaning up after semi-truck fire on Highway 5

Semi burns on Coquihalla

Emergency crews are mopping up after a tractor trailer fire on the Coquihalla Highway this morning.

The fire at exit 195, about 16 kilometres south of the Great Bear Snowshed, has resulted in the closure of a right southbound lane.

“Crews waiting for the vehicle to cool off before it can be removed,” DriveBC said, noting the service’s next update on the incident will be at 11:30 a.m.

A Castanet reader submitted a video of the burned semi trailer.
