SHERBROOK – A young man probably got quite the scare early Friday afternoon when his pickup truck suddenly caught fire.

The man, the sole occupant of the vehicle, was driving along the Barbara Weit Road at about 1 p.m. when police say he started to smell gasoline.

He pulled over to inspect his vehicle, but it caught fire and quickly spread out of control.

The Summerside Volunteer Fire Department was called in to extinguish the blaze, which consumed most of the vehicle.

No one was injured. The RCMP and firefighters quickly had the scene cleared and the road reopened.
