In the Gold Ranch area fire crews are trying to contain two separate brush fires right off the highway.
Neither fire is very big, and both are already being mopped up but there was a lot of smoke, and one lane of traffic was cut off for a while, causing traffic to back up this afternoon along I-80.
No word yet on what started either fire, but there was no lightning in the area when the fires started.
However, lightning may be to blame for a handful of very small fires in Palomino Valley, Spanish Springs and the USA Parkway area.
