    Default Abandoned Trucks Litter California Highway as Wildfire Rages

    Just leaves me speechless. It almost sounds like Armageddon in parts of CA.

    (SHASTA-TRINITY NATIONAL FOREST, Calif.) — Truckers abandoned big-rigs and motorists screamed in fear as they came dangerously close to an explosive wildfire that shut down about 45 miles of a major California interstate near the Oregon border that authorities were desperately trying to reopen.
    The fire erupted Wednesday afternoon in a rural area and devoured timber and brush on both sides of Interstate 5 as it nearly tripled in size overnight, officials said Thursday.

    It was raging just weeks after a blaze in the Redding area killed eight people and burned some 1,100 homes.
    About 17 big-rigs were abandoned along the interstate and at least four caught fire, Lt. Cmdr. Kyle Foster of the California Highway Patrol’s Mount Shasta office told the Los Angeles Times. At least two trucks were partially melted.

    U.S. Forest Service workers helped the driver of one flaming truck to safety. Truckers, firefighters and others aided more drivers.
