Alpine I-8/Tavern Road Fire w/SOT


At approx 11:00 am, 2 spot fires began at the same time along the east bound I-8, just west of Tavern Road. Several Firefighting agencies responded and fought the fire, stopping it at approx 2 acres. The cause is unknown, but probably came for a car’s hot exhaust. the Tavern Road exit east bound is closed for several hours, and the highway traffic was closed down to 2 lanes during the fire.
