slide7.pngA vehicle fire last Friday stalled traffic on Highway 88 in both directions while fire personnel extinguished the blaze. TSPN’s contributing photographer was on the scene to bring you these photographs. A pickup truck traveling east on Highway 88 began leaking fluid and then burst into flames. The driver was able to safely stop the vehicle and get out while a CHP officer who spotted the flames as he passed by quickly began to douse the flames with a fire extinguisher. Amador fire arrived shortly thereafter and began to pour large quantities of water on what had become a gas fire. Traffic was backed up for about three quarters of a mile during the Friday “crush” while emergency personnel made sure the scene was secure. Fire investigators blamed the blaze on a gas leak. No one was hurt during the incident.
