Mounties in Campbell River battled their third vehicle fire on a logging road in as many weeks Sunday.
Shortly before midnight, two Campbell River RCMP officers were called to a fully engulfed truck off the Brewster Lake forest road near Big Bay.

The officers used fire extinguishers to knock down some of the blaze while fire volunteers arrived with a fire blanket.
Police say the driver of the truck, which had flipped on its side before catching fire, went to get a water truck from a forest service company.
Nearby campers also arrived to help police tend the water truck's hose and extinguish most of the fire.
A passenger in the vehicle suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Campbell River Hospital for treatment.
Provincial wildfire fighters mopped up the remnants of the blaze and the wrecked truck has hauled away.
