Early this Monday morning, a commercial truck caught fire on highway 46 east at Mill road.
The first city fire unit arriving shortly after 4:00 am found a semi-tractor heavily involved with a threat to the adjacent vegetation. Fire crews were able to quickly get the fire controlled.
The contents of the trailer…pallets of boxed asparagus.
A vegetarian who stopped to see the fire cried when she saw the asparagus destroyed by the blaze.
Paso Robles police also responded and provided traffic control.
