HERCULES, Calif. —
A big rig caught fire at a Hercules storage yard Saturday morning in a blaze that threatened to spread to other nearby trucks, fire officials said.
The fire at Bayberry Storage Yard was reported at 11:33 a.m., according to Battalion Chief Bryan Craig, a spokesman for the Rodeo Hercules Fire District.
The big rig was fully involved in flames when firefighters arrived, and two nearby tractor trailers were also beginning to catch fire, Craig said.
The fire was extinguished, and the county hazardous materials unit removed the remaining fuel from the truck's tanks and cleaned up runoff from the area, Craig said.
The fire's cause remained under investigation Sunday. There were no injuries.
