Smart Car on fire on Highway 1 (@thegreekdefence / Twitter)

UPDATE: The highway has reopened but some crews are still cleaning up along the side of the road. One left northbound lane remains closed. 


Motorist travelling on the Trans-Canada Highway should expect some delays as fire crews work to douse a vehicle fire.

According to DriveBC, Highway 1 is closed in both directions 1-kilometre north of the Malahat Summit.

Fire crews were dispatched to the fire just after 1:00 p.m.

Photos show a smart car fully engulfed. Injuries are unknown.

The highway is expected to be closed for at least half an hour.

More to come.
