IMPACT DAYS WE HAVE AHEAD. BACK TO YOU. ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. AND SPEAKING OF FIRE DANGER, ALL LANES OF I-80 AND SACRAMENTO ARE NOW BACK OPEN AFTER CREWS PUT OUT TWO GRASS FIRES. NOT ONE, BUT TWO. THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE JUST ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF AGO.

THEY HAD TO SLOW DOWN. IT WAS CLOSED AS CREWS WORKED TO PUT OUT THE FLAMES. ALL LANE
