Fire crews were themselves stuck in traffic and could not get to the scene of the fires. Motorist fled the vehicles, and some took their keys, making it difficult for workers to remove the vehicles to clear the roadway. Fire retardant and water were dropped from helicopters to put out the blaze, but it didn’t help very much. According to reports, the fires started off to the side of the I-15 freeway at about 2:30. About an hour later the fire had spread to 50 acres. Two hours later it covered 3,500 acres.
