A big rig crashed into a building Monday, closing the eastbound Travis Boulevard onramp to I-80 in Fairfield for a short while.

It’s unknown what led to the big rig overturning, but CHP officers said the truck was completely on fire.

The driver made it out O.K.

A nearby Barnes and Noble book store was evacuated, as the fire reportedly spread to trees.

Lanes along eastbound I-80 began to reopen around 4 p.m. Lanes 4 and 5 (closest to the shoulder) were closed for a while longer.

It was unknown if anyone was hurt.
