A van fire closed Highway 97C at Brenda Mine Sunday.
There’s nothing left of a van that caught fire around 1 p.m. in the westbound lanes.
One witness reports that a family escaped the fire and police were transporting them. Around 2 p.m. the highway was open to single lane traffic, said the witness.
DriveBC has not updated their initial report about a vehicle incident at Brenda Mine, and to expect delays and congestion.
