Truck fire near Nelson could have been worse

A freak fire on Nelson’s outskirts could have been a lot worse had it been drier.

This from Captain Jeff Hebert with Nelson Fire Rescue after crews responded quickly to a weekend incident on Bealby Road.

It appears the engine of a pick-up truck ignited and it was connected to a travel trailer with propane tanks.

Almost 300-square feet of forested area was burnt.
