Big rig bursts into flames along I-805 in Sorrento Valley

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - It was an unforgettable sight Friday afternoon along Interstate 805 in Sorrento Valley, as a big rig burst into flames.

The fire happened just before 2:00 p.m. on Southbound I-805 at Sorrento Valley Road. Fortunately, the driver was able to get out just in time and was not hurt.

It took firefighters about 20 minutes to put out the intense flames, which shut down several lanes of the freeway, bringing traffic to a halt.

There is no word yet on what may have caused the big rig to catch fire.
