Tanker Truck Catches Fire on Highway 101 in Montecito

MONTECITO, CA (May 3, 2019) – A tanker truck caught on fire in Montecito on Highway 101 in the morning on Friday. The May 3 incident occurred in the lanes that head north, close to the exit for Padaro Lane.

The time was roughly 5:40 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Reports say the tanker’s brakes had caught on fire. At first, officers from the California Highway Patrol closed the highway’s lanes in both directions in the vicinity of Montecito because of concern over hazmat risks. Later, it was discovered the fire from the brakes did not come in contact with the contents of the tanker.

Firefighters from Montecito worked the scene, and indicated it was safe to allow traffic to move through the lanes traveling south, and one lane traveling north.

The identity of the truck’s driver, including the person’s name, age, gender, and city of residence, has not been reported. It is not known if anyone was hurt in the incident.

Investigators are continuing to work the site.
