Massive Closure on I-5 Northbound Due to Semi-Truck Fire

(Grapevine, CA) A major incident on Interstate 5 (I-5) has caused a significant disruption in the northbound lanes. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) estimates that the closure resulting from a fire involving two semi-trucks will last for approximately 12 hours. 

The massive closure on northbound I-5 has been necessitated by a fire incident involving two semi-trucks. This unfortunate event occurred north of Grapevine Rd, in the area known as the Grapevine. As a result, all northbound lanes have been closed down, leading to significant traffic disruptions in the region. 

Commuters and travelers are advised to plan their routes accordingly and anticipate delays.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the incident unfolded at approximately 1:30 p.m. Preliminary reports indicate that the fire erupted following a collision between the two semi-trucks. The impact caused one of the trucks to jackknife, further complicating the situation. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported at this time. 

However, the severity of the fire has necessitated a thorough investigation and comprehensive cleanup efforts before the roadway can be safely reopened. The California Highway Patrol has implemented effective traffic management strategies to minimize congestion and ensure the safety of motorists. 

Commuters traveling northbound on I-5 are being rerouted at Fort Tejon, where alternative routes and detours have been established. Motorists are urged to follow the guidance of traffic officials and exercise patience, as delays are expected during peak travel hours.

Authorities are investigating the incident.
