Car fire on I-5 stalls traffic near Tacoma

A car fire early Sunday blocked two lanes of southbound Interstate 5 near Tacoma and snarled traffic.

Firefighters were called to the scene about 9:30 a.m. just south of city limits near 84th Street South, Tacoma Fire Battalion Chief Dale Vaughn said.

All of the people in the vehicle were able to get out and firefighters knocked down the blaze quickly, Vaughn said. No injuries were reported.

The lanes remained blocked for about 45 minutes while crews worked to clean up the scene. The cause of the fire had not been determined.
