Major fire closes Platt Bridge

Earlier tonight I noticed a funny smell, like burning rubber, drift in through my window. I didn’t think too much of it, but about an hour later, my roommate came bursting in, saying “check the internet, there’s a big fire burning down near the airport!”

I pulled up the NBC 10 website and it reports that there is a two alarm fire burning stacks of scrapped cars at 26th and Penrose. The fire has closed the Platt Bridge, so if you need to get to the airport tonight you should take I-95 and not I-76.
