The tractor erupted in flames as it was running in the South-North direction at the section near National Highway 1A in the south gates of Hai Van road tunnel in Da Nang. After receiving notification of the incident, the Lien Chieu district’s Fire Prevention, Firefighting and Rescue Police Department quickly sprung into action and sent three fire engines and dozens of fire fighters to the scene to tackle the blaze. The fire was finally brought under control at 5:45 am. The inferno caused severe traffic jams as cars lined up during most of the night until the fire was completely put out. The cause of the incident is still under investigation.
