EL CAJON, Calif. — Smoke poured out of a FedEx big rig loaded with magnesium blocks in the parking lot of an East County metal-fabricating plant Thursday.

A Hazmat crew was called to the scene, just south of Gillespie Field in El Cajon, because crews were not able to spray the materials with water, Heartland Fire-Rescue explained.

Officials said the truck was not threatening to spread fire to nearby buildings.
