Dispatch advised several times driver trapped in vehicle. By the time responders arrived he had got out and was trying to put out the fire with his own fire extinguisher.

Ambulance canceled and thankfully only a traffic hazard currently.

Yes it was a tow truck.

An amusing moment was when the responders requested a tow truck for the tow truck. Then a few minutes later they had to cancel it because the tow truck driver already called HIS company to come do the tow.

It seems like there is an accident there every day or so.

Nice to have an extinguisher on hand. I carried one in my car, always.

...maybe an addition to the SLOW sign..."and like we AIN'T Kiddin--it's a doozy!"

475P - don't know why you find this amusing but the tow truck showed up and towed the disabled vehicle to a safe location.

537 - it was a very small company based in SB - they are kind people and this incident will hopefully not hurt their business.
