Grass Fire Shuts down 101 near Salinas Airport & early am fire at PB Lodge

4:00 pm – Two vegetation fires in Salinas have shut down Highway 101 at Airport Boulevard due to heavy smoke across the freeway. The fire was reported at 3:10 p.m. on the roadside of southbound Highway 101, but by 3:28 p.m. a second fire started near the northbound lanes just south of the Salinas Municipal Airport.

The Lodge at Pebble Beach Experienced a fire this am just after 4:00 am. I have a photo of that fire which I will continue to try to upload.
