Hwy 101 Lanes Reopened in S.F. Presidio Following Car Fire in MacArthur Tunnel

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

The 1,300-foot 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.

The right lane remained closed for sweeper and roadway inspection.

All lanes were reopened in both directions shortly after 5:30 p.m.
