The Fairfield Fire Department says a 7-alarm has spread to homes near I-80 and Marigold Drive.

At least five structures began to burn shortly after 4 p.m.

The fire also led to the closure of two lanes along I-80 because of fire and smoke on the shoulder, according to the CHP. A fire truck reportedly became stuck in heavy traffic.

Nearby residences were asked to evacuate, and vehicles in a nearby AT&T parking lot were also reportedly burned, Highway Patrol said.

Crews have also reportedly ordered a strike team from Cal Fire to assist in battling the flames.

High winds helped the flames spread.
