A semi-truck caught fire at the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) processing plant in Goleta on Sunday morning.
At 8:31 a.m., Santa Barbara County firefighters responded to 400 Storke Road and found the cab of a USPS semi-truck fully engulfed in flames. The fire was spreading to other semi-trucks when crews arrived, but they contained the majority of the fire to the main truck, said Captain Dave Zaniboni.
Two semi-trucks parked next to the truck on fire sustained some external damage, but no structures were damaged in this fire.
A thick column of smoke could be seen throughout Goleta, said Zaniboni.
The cause of the fire is unknown and under investigation. There were no injuries reported.
