The fire near the I-80 exit to Truckee burned 170-acres.

The fire forced the closure of the highway that connects Sacramento and Reno, Nevada, for about three hours, backing up traffic for several miles.

Fire officials say they were concerned the blaze could jump a ridge north of the lake and threaten homes in the Tahoe-Donner neighborhood, but no evacuations were ordered and no homes were
damaged.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
