Hwy 101 Truck Fire/6 Mile Back-Up 10-08-2013 19:00 av
Traffic was at a six-mile standstill for about an-hour-and-a-half today on Highway 101 at 129, between Hollister and Gilroy, after a pick up truck was on fire. Witnesses report seeing a man intentionally torch the truck on a frontage road next to Highway 101, before he fled the scene around 1 p.m. The fire charred two acres of wild-land on both sides of the highway, causing it to partially close in that area in both directions. 101 was reopened as of 2:35 p.m.
