Marborg truck catches on fire near Santa Barbara shopping center

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Santa Barbara City firefighters were on scene of a vehicle fire near the area of Lighthouse Road and Cliff Drive in Santa Barbara's Mesa Thursday afternoon.

The fire was reported at 2:32 p.m. involving a Marborg truck that caught on fire in the parking lot near the Lazy Acres grocery store.

The Marborg truck driver moved the truck out of the parking lot as it began smoking, which allowed firefighters to work in a bigger space.

Nearby Washington Elementary School was not affected.

Crews reportedly used Class A foam, which helps the water penetrate the combustible material to quickly suppress the fire or any rekindling that may occur.

No injuries were reported in this incident. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

No further details were immediately available.
