FONTANA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A tractor-trailer fire on the southbound I-15 prompted authorities to block the Duncan Canyon Road off-ramp in Fontana.

At about 11:00 AM on Monday, August 10, 2020, firefighters responded to a vehicle fire and located a red Volvo 18-wheeler with the cab fully engulfed and spreading to the trailer.

According to the CHP incident logs, the breaks on the truck were reported to be on fire and the trailer was reportedly hauling steel plates.

Just before 11:30 AM, crews reported the fire was under control to both the vegetation and the trailer. Firefighters will remain on scene for 30-45 minutes for mop-up.

No injuries were reported and the official cause of fire is under investigation.
