A truck carrying large hay bales caught fire earlier this afternoon on southbound 99 between Mack and Florin Roads. The fire has forced the closure of all southbound lanes, south of Florin Road. Traffic is backed up to the US 50 interchange. Northbound 99 was affected by the smoke and traffic. The latest update at 3 pm was that the CHP hoped to have it opened by 5 pm.
