Semi Truck on Fire at Highway 101 Near Crannell Road; Southbound Traffic Impacted

UPDATE, 11:48 a.m.: They have one lane of southbound 101 open now after a short closure to knock down flames on the burning semi truck in the center divide. 

The CHP first got word of this truck up in Orick, when a caller noted that the truck’s brakes were on fire. A few minutes and miles south, the fire had spread to the entire vehicle.
