Car fire on I-5 leads to messy morning commute

A car fire on southbound I-5 near 164th led to long delays Thursday morning.

The fire started just before 7 a.m. in the carpool lane. When crews arrived shortly after, they had to block another lane to extinguish the flames.

It was cleared out by 7:30 a.m., but the backup stretched all the way to Highway 526.
