The Las Vegas Review Journal reported Wednesday, May 7th, “Traffic was flowing again on both sides of a major California-to-Nevada interstate after being blocked by a bridge fire that stalled travelers and left charred wreckage slumping into lanes. Southbound lanes of Interstate 15 in the Mojave Desert town of Hesperia were reopened at 11:45 p.m. Tuesday, Caltrans spokeswoman Terri Kasinga said early Wednesday. … The uncompleted overpass, located 60 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, caught fire Monday afternoon when a blowtorch being used to cut metal reinforcing bars ignited support timbers. Winds gusting to 35 mph fanned the flames.”
