Diesel truck fire on 710 Freeway halts traffic on Thanksgiving Eve

By Brian Hews

Motorists on the Long Beach 710 Freeway have come to a grinding halt late Wednesday night due to a diesel truck fire near Willow Street.

Calls came into the California Highway Patrol beginning at 10:43 p.m. about a “big rig tractor on fire.”

Members of the Long Beach Fire Department have been deployed to the fire location on the 710 Freeway.  The accident has snarled traffic for motorists who are travelling the night before Thanksgiving.  No confirmation about injuries.
