Cardboard fire closes part of Interstate 15 in Cajon Pass
No one was injured in the blaze, which engulfed much of the truck.
The fire was sparked atop the big rig parked on the southbound freeway in the Blue Cut area of the pass, five miles south of state Highway 138. It backed up traffic for miles in the morning.
“I don’t expect a full opening until probably after 2 p.m. today,” said Terri Kasinga, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Transportation.
