A BMW SUV caught fire on Highway One

The driver of a BMW SUV managed to pull over and get out before the vehicle became engulfed in flames eastbound on Highway One, near the 208 Street overpass on Thursday afternoon.

Around 2:30 p.m., Township firefighters rushed to the scene and doused the flames with foam. Firefighters confirm that no one was injured in the fire.

Several people pulled over on the overpass to take pictures including Langley teenager and photography enthusiast Lauren Mercer, who shared her picture with the Langley Times.

The fire was the beginning of a nightmare commute for freeway users, who saw several accidents, the next one at the 232 Street exit and another at the 264 Street exit.
