FORT TEJON, Calif. - All lanes on southbound Interstate 5 near Grapevine Road are now open.
Southbound Interstate 5 had two lanes closed earlier due to a grass fire that was burning on the west side of the freeway, according to Officer Robert Rodriguez from the California Highway Patrol.
Just after 1 p.m., a semi truck caught fire in the right lane of southbound I-5 south of Grapevine Road and the fire started a grass fire in the area that was burning to the south and is west of I-5, according to the California Department of Transportation.
Officer Rodriguez said the smoke was blowing across the freeway, causing those lanes to be shut down.
The lanes were closed for fire personnel fighting the grass fire and to clear the burned semi truck cab and trailer from the lanes.
