Shortly after 9:15 a.m., a car fire was reported to the California Highway Patrol on the Skyway. Eastbound lanes were temporarily closed, but all lanes have reopened at this time.

The driver of a red pick-up truck was headed eastbound when the pick-up truck died and the driver pulled over to the shoulder of the road. When attempting to restart the truck, an engine fire started and the truck became fully engulfed in flames.

Another driver saw the flames and attempted to help extinguish the fire, but they were unsuccessful and called the fire department. There were no injuries.
