Damage is estimated at $60,000 for a semi truck that caught fire on the Trans-Canada Highway Tuesday morning.

"The driver had pulled out on to the highway from Ninth Avenue and noticed some smoke coming from his cab, pulled over and realized that his vehicle was on fire," Brian Wilson, deputy chief of the Moose Jaw Fire Department told the Times-Herald.

The driver of the semi was, however, able to escape his cab without any injuries. 

Both Moose Jaw fire stations responded to the fire shortly after 9 a.m., which resulted in the closure of eastbound lanes on the Trans-Canada, east of Ninth Avenue Northwest, for about an hour.

Moose Jaw Police were also on scene.
