Cube van goes up in flames just outside of downtown Mission

Lougheed Highway down to alternating lane, emergency crews on scene

A cube van burst into flames along Lougheed Highway, just outside of downtown Mission this morning.

Emergency crews responded to the fire just before 8 a.m., where the van was parked outside of Mr. Pets in the 35500 Block of Lougheed Highway.

All highway traffic was stopped for a short time as firefighters put down the flames; it’s now down to a single alternating lane.

The driver was on scene, and told first responders the vehicle was fine when he left that morning, according to emergency scanners.
