Shortly after 11:00AM Emergency services were called to the eastbound 401 in between Toronto Rd and CR-28 for a fully involved car fire.
Initial reports indicated that the occupant was still in the vehicle at the time of the fire, but thankfully the occupant was able to escape the fire without injury.
Port Hope Fire and Emergency Services were able to extinguish the Dodge Dart in a matter of minutes!
Currently two right lanes are closed for safety. The fire department wil make sure the fire is completely out, without any hotspots before allowing a tow to remove the vehicle.
Great job done by our amazing emergency services!
