FLORISTON, Calif. (KOLO) -A tractor-trailer rig collided with a highway wall at Floriston and caught fire about 3:12 p.m., slowing eastbound Interstate 80 traffic, the California Highway Patrol reported.

“It’s amazing no one got hurt!” the CHP said in a Facebook post.

One lane remained open during the incident and no one was hurt.

The CHP in Truckee also reported that a rockslide closed Donner Pass Road between Truckee and Donner Summit. The road is not safe to use because of falling rocks and erosion.
