    Seen the coppers and the fire trucks head that way, wasn’t sure what all the chatter on the scanner was about but here we have it, thanks for the update!
    And yes I’m first!

  • Hot brakes!glad it’s out everyone’s ok

  • I saw this while on my way to Eureka. It was well off the road on a broad pullout, and there were a number of firetrucks and police vehicles all flashing their lights while smoke poured upwards from the back of the truck. Impressive. Glad they got it out.
