Truck on Fire Shut 101 Southbound Lanes Between Ukiah and Hopland, Humboldt County Woman Assists Truck Driver
Totten, who is a retired firefighter, says she called in the incident. Then she convinced the driver that he would be in danger if he didn’t stop fighting the flames. “It was too big,” she said.
Fire crews from the area arrived and “knocked it down fairly quickly before it spread much into the wildland,” she explained.
All southbound lanes were blocked for approximately twenty minutes while the big truck burned.
