The Trans Canada Highway in Burnaby is inaccessible this afternoon due to a trailer vehicle fire.

According to the Ministry of Transportation, the vehicle fire occurred on the eastbound lanes near the Douglas Road overpass. If possible, drivers are being asked to exit Highway 1 and use Lougheed Highway as their alternate route.

The incident began just after 2:30 p.m. Expect major delays.

  • UPDATE at 3:50 p.m.: Westbound lane traffic is beginning to flow again and two eastbound lanes have reopened. Delays are expected to continue into the early evening due to the backlog.

More on this as it develops…
