RCMP and Volunteer Fire Departments Respond to two vehicle incidents on Highway 97 South

No serious injuries were reported in two separate vehicle incidents on Highway 97 south Wednesday afternoon.

Williams Lake Staff Sgt. Del Byron says they received a call of a vehicle carrier fully engulfed in flames at the 140 Mile House area at 3:30.

He says the axel of the trailer which had a flat tire had caught on fire.

The 150 Mile Volunteer Fire Department was on scene to extinguish it.

Traffic was also impacted a few hours earlier by another motor vehicle incident involving flames.

Clinton RCMP Corporal Curtis Davis says both lanes of the Highway near 70 Mile were closed due to a vehicle which was struck igniting in flames on the center line of the highway.

He says they were on scene for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours, and that the 70 Mile Volunteer Fire Department along with Bridge Lake Towing also attended and did a great job.

He says those involved in the incident received medical treatment and have since been released.
