Northbound lanes of the Trans-Canada Highway between Thetis and Millstream were shut down Friday afternoon after a bus caught fire.

A photo sent into the CTV newsroom confirms the fire happened just past Thetis Lake towards Langford.

The fire broke out just after 1:30 p.m.

Northbound lanes were shut down for more than an hour as crews clean up the diesel.

The right lane remains closed.
