A semi rolled and caught fire Wednesday morning along the Trans-Canada Highway near Richer. It happened around 9:45 a.m.
The incident took place in the eastbound lanes, just east of Richer in front of Geppetto's. The tanker burst into flames, sending a plume of black smoke into the air.
A detour has been set up around the accident scene.
There is preliminary word that there are injuries and we will have more on that as soon as possible.
