Fire in Tractor-Trailer Hauling Peat on Trans-Canada Highway in Edmundston
A smoldering fire on board a tractor trailer packed full of peat moss presented a challenge for firefighters Wednesday afternoon in Edmundston, N.B.
The fire broke out around 3 p.m. in the trailer of a heavy goods transport truck traveling on the Trans-Canada Highway, according to a report from CIMT-TV.
Firefighters attempted to extinguish the fire burning in the load of peat, but the task was difficult along the busy highway. The Trans-Canada was reduced to one lane for a short while.
Fire officials decided to move the truck to the Edmundston snow dump in order to have more space to completely extinguish the fire.
No one was injured. There’s no word on what sparked the blaze.
