A fire started by a vehicle accident around 11 a.m. on Monday has burned about 370 acres 16 air miles northwest of Bridgeport, California. Most of the fire is west of U.S. Highway 395, which was closed overnight from Bridgeport north to the Nevada State Line, but there were several spots across the highway which were picked up. The highway reopened at about 1 p.m. on Tuesday.

Monday afternoon the CHP requested a tow truck for a Jeep Cherokee that had rolled over and burned 40 feet down an embankment.
