Fire ruins truck, not the milk

Semi-truck destroyed by fire in Armstrong early Saturday morning

The milk was spared but the delivery truck was not as fortunate.

Armstrong Spallumcheen volunteer fire department responded to a vehicle fire report shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday in the 1300 block of Pleasant Valley Road.

“We had a semi truck fully involved, and it was totally destroyed,” said fire chief Ian Cummings.

The truck had been delivering milk from the Lower Mainland to a transfer station so the milk could be redistributed.

It caught fire shortly after arriving in Spallumcheen.

The milk was transferred fully out of the trailer.

It’s believed the fire started under the hood of the semi and is not believed to be suspicious.

The driver was not injured.
