Traffic flowing again on Nisga'a Hwy

TRAFFIC IS moving again on the Nisga'a Hwy as a camper fire is now safe enough for vehicles to pass.

Flaggers arrived to direct traffic past the blaze site about 10 km north of Terrace on the Nisga'a Hwy that halted vehicles for a couple of hours.

After 8 p.m. Aug. 24, a camper caught fire but the driver, who was the only person in the vehicle, got out safely.

Police were at the scene shortly afterward and placed their vehicles across the lanes with lights flashing to keep traffic and any onlookers far enough away from the blaze.

Since the blaze ignited outside the fire protection area, Terrace city firefighters were not dispatched to the site.

Witnesses said there were several explosions, which they believed were the tires.
