A man driving to Eureka from Sacramento had a bad day today. He had car trouble. When he pulled over north of Weott, the heat from his exhaust system caught the roadside grass on fire. Multiple passerbys pulled over to help put out the fire. One of them, Rusty Rogers, took this photo. He said 15 to 20 people helped put out the blaze including Cal Fire.
One lane was temporarily closed early this evening until a tow truck arrived to remove the vehicle.
