Traffic on Van Ness Avenue at Eddy Street was forced to detour after a vehicle fire this afternoon.
ATTN: Northbound 47 & 49 routing via Golden Gate to Polk to Eddy to Van Ness due to earlier #SFFD activity at Eddy.— SFMTA (@sfmta_muni) November 3, 2016
Hoodline tipster Sean I. sent in the above photo of smoke pouring out of the vehicle, which was sitting in a northbound lane on Van Ness. He added that firefighters pulled a propane tank from the vehicle, which may have contributed to the flames.
Twitter user @Cernovich also captured a few close-up shots of the blaze:
