Caught by the fire -- while on the freeway

It's a rare day in Southern California when so many freeways -- 5, 210, 57, 91, 14 -- are shut down at the same time. But this is no ordinary day. Consider this just-released City News Service advisory on the 241 toll road in Orange County:

According to the California Highway Patrol, some motorists are caught in standstill traffic caused by smoke and flames, and are abandoning their vehicles on the Eastern Transportation (241) Corridor south of Santa Ana Canyon in Orange County.

Full list of closures here.
