Car Fire Stalls Interstate Traffic in Roseville
A car fire caused extended delays on westbound Interstate 80 in Roseville on November 29. It happened in the vicinity of the Douglas Boulevard entrance ramp at around 1:00 in the afternoon. According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), a white pickup truck caught fire along the right-hand side of the road. The truck was thought to be a Dodge Ram, but there is no confirmation of that by authorities at this time. The two right-hand lanes were reopened about 46 minutes later at 1:46 p.m., but traffic continued to creep along due to delays on both I-80 and Highway 65. The CHP said the occupants of the pickup were removed from the vehicle, and the fire was extinguished. The CHP is investigating why the car fire began.
