Car fire briefly shuts San Francisco’s MacArthur Tunnel

July 21, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities say nobody was hurt when a car caught fire inside San Francisco’s MacArthur Tunnel.

The 1,300-foot (400-meter) tunnel filled with thick smoke and was shut down Sunday afternoon.

Photos from the scene showed a black plume rising above the route in the Presidio area.

Officials eventually reopened the two northbound lanes and one southbound lane. There was no estimate when the other southbound lane would reopen.
