Fire at Cultus Lake closes the road

Vehicle fire caused column of black smoke to billow over the lake

It might mean a longer drive for some heading home from Cultus Lake Sunday night.

A vehicle fire reportedly erupted at Cultus Lake, across the road from a new lakeside condo development under construction.

At this point there are very few details available.

The fire caused a huge column of black smoke to rise into the air at the lake, and closed Columbia Valley Highway at about 6:45, as fire crews were arriving on-scene.

It is not known if there were any injuries.
