Fiery gas spill in San Diego

According to NBC San Diego:

A tanker truck caught fire and spilled thousands of gallons of burning fuel into the street Wednesday night, sending people nearby running for safety.

The truck was on its way to an Arco station when the rear tank suddenly flipped on its side, sparking an inferno shortly before 6 p.m. on Palm Avenue near the intersection of Interstate 805 near the community of Otay Mesa south of San Diego.

No word yet on yet whether the Obama administration will announce an immediate muratorium on all tanker trucks in the U.S. until the administration can check them for safety.
