Flaming tractor on Hwy. 58 partially blocks road, but motorists can still pass

Thirteen firefighters and three engines are at the scene of a tractor that caught fire this morning off Highway 58.

The tractor caught fire at the highway’s intersection with Shell Creek Road. CalFire units were called at 10:39 a.m., and so far they report that no vegetation is burning.

The tractor is actually on a trailer, and the truck hauling it is partially blocking the highway, but passing motorists can get by, CalFire said.

A CHP officer is also responding to deal with the traffic issue.
