UPDATE: Highway 19 partly open after tanker truck fire

Highway 19 is re-opened to single-lane, alternating traffic after a vehicle fire shut it down for eight kilometres.

On social media, Campbell River RCMP have posted a notification about the closure. They say it’s because of a motor vehicle accident involving a tanker truck near the old pulp and paper mill site.

Drive BC reported the vehicle was on fire, causing a closure for nearly eight kilometres between Orange Point and Race Point Roads.

Police say the highway is now partially re-opened, but won’t be fully re-opened until at least 4 pm, and drivers should expect delays.

Emergency services are on scene and assessing the situation. No one was injured in the crash.

We will post updates here as they become available.
