Tractor trailer fire shuts down Highway 104 Tuesday

The westbound lanes of Highway 104 were temporarily closed Tuesday afternoon as emergency crews dealt with a tractor trailer on fire near Londonderry.

Colchester District RCMP Corporal Marc Rose tells our newsroom westbound traffic was backed up from road marker 75 to Exit 10 around 2 p.m.

He says the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal set up barricades to give the Great Village and District Volunteer Fire Brigade space to extinguish the blaze.

The fire was reported to be mechanical, starting in the engine block, and there were no injuries.
