Vehicle fires snarled traffic on Interstate 5 and Interstate 205 on Thursday afternoon, the first burning a sedan just south of the northbound Interstate 5 exit to Woodland.
Starting around 2:30 p.m., a burning 2000 Dodge Intrepid and emergency responders blocked the right and center lanes. No one was hurt, Washington State Trooper Will Finn said.
The scene was cleared around 3:10 p.m. Finn said the car apparently had been abandoned; its owner contacted him later Thursday afternoon.
A second vehicle fire and firefighting efforts, around 4:10 p.m., blocked one lane of southbound Interstate 205 south of Padden Parkway.
The burning Mercury station wagon had a lane blocked for about 10 minutes, Finn said. No one was hurt.
