DEER LAKE Police are still uncertain how an RV camper caught fire on the Trans-Canada Highway near the Howley exit earlier today.
Crews from the Deer Lake Fire Department were dispatched and managed to contain the fire using foam. Traffic was slowed down for a couple of hours as police had to shut down one lane to allow for a tow truck, which was expected on the scene around 2 p.m.
The driver of the RV, the lone occupant of the vehicle, was unhurt. Police are continuing to investigate the incident.
