Propane truck fire shuts down Highway 10 near Brandon
Highway closed while firefighters battled flames and thick smoke on Monday
Highway 10 north of Brandon was closed for a short period of time Monday afternoon after a truck caught fire at a propane depot just outside the city.
Emergency crews were called to the Heritage Co-op propane centre just north of Brandon at about 5:30 p.m. Monday, RCMP said.
RCMP cleared people from the scene and Mounties and Brandon Police Service officers shut down the highway due to the risk from the fire near combustible propane.
Firefighters quickly put the propane truck fire out and the highway was opened about 30 minutes later, RCMP said.
No one was hurt. RCMP said the fire isn't considered suspicious.
