TRAFFIC: Southbound I-5 Lanes All Clear At Smokey Bear

Freeway closed in early morning, two lanes open most of the morning at southbound Smokey Bear due to truck fire and spilled load of fuel and fruit.

UPDATED FRIDAY 1:09 pm

Caltrans has lifted the SigAlert at the southbound I-5 just north of Smokey Bear Road after cleaning up fuel and fruit spilled by a big rig that burned shortly after 2 a.m.

The driver escaped the burning truck and Caltrans implemented a complete closure of the southbound lanes at 3:03 a.m. because the big rig’s tires had exploded, the fruit cargo had fallen into traffic lanes and a significant amount of fuel had seeped across the freeway.

Fire units were able to contain the fuel, diverting it from storm drains.
