SALINA, Kansas – Smoke from several grass fires west of Salina late Monday afternoon made driving treacherous along Interstate 70.

The smoke, along with a five vehicle crash, prompted a portion of the interstate to be closed for a short time.

The crash involved some semis.  Two people were transported to the hospital.

Firefighters from several counties helped put out the blaze. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
