At least two incidents along Highway 1 in Abbotsford were affecting traffic Friday, the first day of the Labor Day long weekend.

A large fire erupted near Bradner Road and Townshipline Road, and several fire trucks responded to the fire shortly before 2:30 p.m. The fire was quickly contained, according to witnesses.

At around the same time, a car flipped over on Highway 1 eastbound at Whatcom Road, near Castle Fun Park. Traffic was already congested prior to the events.
