Lanes open again on SB I-805 in Linda Vista after semi-truck fire

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A tractor-trailer caught fire on a Linda Vista freeway early Wednesday, prompting authorities to shut down all but one lane on southbound Interstate 805 for about an hour.

The noninjury fire on the side of southbound I-805, just south of northbound Cabrillo (163) Freeway, was reported at 5:05 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

A short time later, firefighters knocked down the blaze, which appeared to have originated under a rear tire, a San Diego fire-rescue dispatcher said. The cause of the fire was under investigation.

No word yet on what kind of cargo, if any, the vehicle was carrying.

A SigAlert was in effect until all lanes of traffic were re-opened at 6:01 a.m.
