NBC Bay Area

The Delta Fire burning in Shasta and Trinity counties prompted another Interstate 5 closure, officials announced Thursday. The freeway closure lasted several hours just north of Lake Shasta and up to Highway 89.

California Highway Patrol's Mount Shasta division said I-5 reopened just after 6 p.m.

Cal Fire reports the Delta Fire has charred more than 58,000 acres and is 17 percent contained.

No other information was immediately available.
