A diesel truck caught fire heading south on I-5 Tuesday night near Oso Parkway, blocking traffic and dumping 150 gallons of diesel fuel into a nearby storm drain, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Authorities were called at 8:56 p.m. about the truck fire. A minute later, the truck was completely engulfed in flames, according to the CHP website.

The third and fourth lanes from the right were closed as of 9:47 p.m.
By 9, authorities were concerned that wind could carry embers across the street, causing a second fire.
There were no reports of a second fire by 10:25 p.m. By then the truck fire was completely out according to a CHP dispatcher.
No one has been reported injured by the accident, the dispatcher said. Investigators are still determining the cause of the fire.
Two sigalerts were issued after the fire closed the three lanes of traffic closest to the right around 9:10 p.m.
