A stretch of Highway 3A near Yellow Lake, which was the scene of a vehicle fire on Tuesday, September 4 – is also the location of two previous vehicle fires in the past three years.

All three fires occurred along a three hundred metre stretch of Highway 3A, near the distance signage about two kilometres south of Yellow Lake.

In June of 2011, a vehicle caught fire and burned on the opposite side of the highway, just a few hundred metres south of Tuesday’s fire. In 2010, a motor home burned just a few metres south of the September 4 fire.
