A Military vehicle fire this morning around 11:20 am had both west bound lanes of the Trans Canada Highway blocked off for about a half a hour. Salisbury Fire Department responded to the fire at mile marker 445 between Berrys Mills & Magnetic Hill exits of the T.C.H. just on the outskirts of Moncton. District 11 R.C.M.P also responded to the call. There were a couple of other military vehicles further back from the fire and they were blocking the highway waiting for the Fire department to arrive. The vehicle burnt for 15 minutes before Firefighters put water to the fire. Moncton Fire Department also responded to the fire with Engine 5 but it wasn't needed. Cst Bedard was the RCMP officer that attended the Fire scene. It was raining lightly but didn't help with the fire. Moncton Fire Department would have been alot closer to this call then Salisbury.
