This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

The Alaska Highway was closed for a period of time yesterday around 5 PM due to a semi truck catching fire.

Cpl. Jodi Shelkie of the Fort St. John RCMP said police responded to a call from the driver of the semi truck, saying it was on fire.

The driver pulled off to a vacant lot near the Inland Kenworth building.

RCMP, along with the Charlie Lake Fire Department, responded to the call and closed down the Alaska Highway for some time as a precaution, and roads near the incident as well.

Flames were scorching the rear end of the semi, but were extinguished quickly.

Shelkie adds that no injuries were reported.
