Chip truck fire in Osoyoos Monday morning. Dispatch time 5.48 am
Main Street north and west of Bridge
A tractor trailer hauling a double load of wood chips and sawdust saw its brakes catch fire at about 5:45 a.m.
Fire chief Ryan McCaskill said the driver did a good job of disconnecting the loads to allow firefighters access to the fire.
Crews were able to douse the blaze quickly and avoid what could have been an inferno, McCaskill said.
