Flaming taco truck shuts Vallejo street

A taco truck sustained extensive damage after it caught fire while it was being driven in Vallejo Tuesday evening, according to a Vallejo Fire Department spokesman.

At 6:02 p.m., fire officials received a report of a food truck that caught fire in the 700 block of Springs Road, according to fire spokesman Kevin Brown.

The road was briefly shut down as firefighters responded.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire within about 15 minutes, according to Brown.

While the food truck, which was identified as Tacos Vallejo, sustained extensive damage, the truck’s driver was not injured.

The cause of the blaze was determined to be related to mechanics and not cooking, Brown said.
