I-182 back open after brush fires cause closure

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -- Traffic is back to normal on Interstate-182 in Pasco after a few small brush fires closed down the roadway.

Three fires started near the Road 68 exit just before 6pm Monday night. 

Firefighters blocked off some lanes because of safety concerns. Smoke made it hard for drivers in the westbound lanes to see. 

The three fires burned about two acres. Crews are investigating the cause.
