It was quite the sight for drivers yesterday afternoon as a truck went up in flames on Cumberland Road.

The incident occurred just west of the Inland Island Highway underpass. The Cumberland Fire Department and Comox Valley RCMP attended the scene shortly after 5 PM.

Fortunately, the driver of the truck managed to escape the vehicle safely.

The Fire Department remained on scene for hours as the truck burned.
