A fire on Interstate 5 near the main gate at Joint Base Lewis-McChord caused a traffic jam in the southbound lanes Monday afternoon.

The fire caused the two right lanes of southbound traffic to be closed while road crews extinguished the blaze, the state Department of Transportation said.

Driving south on I-5 is stop-and-go driving almost all the way to State Route 512.
