TURLOCK —

Turlock firefighters responded to a fully engulfed semi-truck on Industrial Rowe Monday night.

Although the truck was a total loss, crews were able to prevent damage to the attached trailer.

The driver of the semi-truck had just gone to bed in the sleeper compartment when he heard some popping noises and called 911. He got out and found heavy fire underneath the truck. The driver was able to grab some personal belongings and escape the truck uninjured.

Firefighters determined the cause of the fire was a mechanical malfunction in or near the engine compartment.

No one was injured in the fire.
