UPDATE 9/8 3:50pm:  Firefighters have contained the fire after burning about 800 acres and I-5 has been reopened!  


Another day, yet another fire here in California, and this one much closer to home as a fire has broke out by the airport which has shut down I-5 in both directions.  Northbound Traffic diverted to northbound 99 and Southbound traffic being turned back around at the airport.   Obviously this will impact anyone who needs to travel to the airport this evening.  Earlier today Governor Newsom gave his updates as firecrews fight off fires across the state.
