PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A car fire in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 84 has forced a closure and subsequent backups, officials said Wednesday.
Gresham Fire got word of a fire near milepost 17 and Marine Drive around 10:15 a.m.
Responding emergency crews found the fully-involved sedan on the eastbound off ramp to the freeway’s frontage road. No one was able to locate anyone near the car — including the owner. Because of the high winds and amount of fuel on the ground near the vehicle, it was a difficult fire to extinguish, GF said.
Crews said the car was a total loss.
KOIN 6 reached out to the Gresham Police Department for more information and will report any new developments as they come in.
