The big fire in underpasss tunnel blocks I-5; cannot go to fly

SANTA CLARITA, California (AP) -- Firefighters finished removing charred debris Sunday from a freeway tunnel where three people died in a fiery pileup that could keep a major interstate shut down for days.


Interstate 5 is closed in both directions at the Newhall Pass as the truck tunnel smolders Saturday.

Investigators determined 28 commercial vehicles and one passenger vehicle were involved in the crash late Friday that killed three people and injured at least 10, Deputy Fire Chief John Tripp said. The search of the debris ended Sunday morning and confirmed no more fatalities.
--------

I-5 is still blocked both ways at 14 intersection. 20 trucks piled up Friday night during rain and flammable cargo exploded. The tunnel structure was weakened by fire and expected to collapse. It will take a long time to reopen the truck route.

Yup, that kept me around the house today instead of flying. That's really going to muck up traffic for a while.

John you could have taken little Tujunga from your place. Get off on Penrose from the 118. Very winding, but you will end up going past the divide, just coming from the other direction than you normally come.

...or Angeles Crest/Angeles Forest/Aliso Canyon. Time is actually about the same as 210/5/14 from La Crescenta or anywhere East or South of that.

Nick,

It is kind of you to think about me.

Nice sea breeze, 20-30 mph, from west is forecast at Parker for Tuesday. I will use the local street (San Fernando Rd.) to connect with Highway 14.

Thanks for advice. If the wind changes to south, I will go up the Divide using little Tujunga road. Not much a problem.
