Traffic News: Fire blocked traffic on SB I-15

SAN DIEGO, CA – A brush fire erupted today on southbound I-15 near Gophyr Canyon Road, reports Caltrans.

A brush fire started around 6:00 p.m. on Interstate-15 southbound. Hot weather brings a higher risk of fires sparking up. Those risks increase around the July Fourth holiday as people set off fireworks. The dry brush catches quickly and can overwhelm fire crews.

Today’s fire was reported to the San Diego Fire Department and crews were dispatched to the area. The California Highway Patrol blocked traffic on the right lane of southbound I-15.

Fire crews fought the blaze for over three hours before it was finally extinguished. The right lane was reopened and traffic is moving smoothly now.
