Kudos to MarBorg, and a smart driver for finding a safe place to dump the load, and avoid what could have been a dangerous outcome.

That was the Sandlewood Fire that started by a garbage truck dumping it's burning load near a field right next to a mobile home park on a extremely windy day. Investigators are still thinking of charging the driver with a crime. Totally avoidable and it killed two people. Locals in Calimesa are highly suspicious of why he would do something so careless seeing as he could have driven it to a safer place. This driver here deserves a safety award and recognition.

Common sense people drove it to safe place; it was in a contained space...….

One of the recent huge fires south of us was started when a dump truck unloaded burning material on the roadside during a heavy wind. Glad this one ended well. If the driver had stopped on a surface street what was he supposed to do then? Sounds like he made the right decision.

Maybe the driver was refusing to pull over till he could find an open space and keep the pollution further away from the city..

Roger, that's my thought too. It's probably safer to get it away from the general public and to just head to the showgrounds where there are less people and less chance of it getting spread or out of hand.

Fire is confined to the trash, another engine and a bull dozer is responding.

I know this isn't really funny but I cannot help but laugh. I just watched them go down the on ramp at Arrellaga, following the trash truck that won't pull over.

I was driving my car once with an engine fire and had Engine 3 driving behind me ordering me to pull over gosh that was about 20 years ago I was trying to get to work.
