BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Things are back to normal this morning on Highway 58 after a semi fire shut down the busy freeway for more than an hour.
At about 8 p.m., on Monday, Feb. 25, the California Highway Patrol said the semi was hauling prune juice when somehow the fuel tank ruptured, causing it to burst into flames.
The driver wasn't injured and the lanes were re-opened a little after 9:30 p.m.
