Caught on camera: Truck fire snarls rush hour traffic on Route 222
A tractor trailer went up in flames on a Route 222 ramp during the height of the evening rush hour Thursday.
The fire was reported around 5:30 p.m. on a ramp from Route 222 South to Route 422 West in Spring Twp., Berks Co. Flames reportedly involved both the truck's cab and the trailer.
The driver was able to get out unharmed, said emergency dispatchers, who had no information about what the truck was hauling.
Firefighters quickly got control of the fire, but it was some time before the charred wreckage could be removed.
