Fire Snarls I-80 Traffic

Posted by wlpo on June 28, 2012

Eastbound traffic of Interstate 80 near Princeton was backed up for over a half hour this morning because of a fire.

Calls to police started coming in around 8:50 for heaving smoke coming from the southside of the interstate near the Interstate 180 intersection.  It was a grass fire that was brought under control just after 9:30.

Eastbound traffic was being rerouted off 80 into Princeton.
