A stretch of Highway 2 between La Ronge and Prince Albert was closed for 9-and-a-half hours Saturday following a single vehicle rollover involving a fuel truck.


No injuries were reported.


The vehicle rolled and caught fire at about 11:30 Saturday morning around 50 kilometres north of the Waskesiu turnoff.


Traffic was diverted to the Molanosa Road until the highway was re-opened at about 9 o’clock that evening.
