The car fire is out and emergency crews have left the scene on southbound 35E at County Road J. All lanes are now open, and that should help traffic shake loose. Delays still persist back to Main Street in the White Bear Lake/Hugo area.
Westbound 494 is plugged up from the Minnesota River bridge past the scene of a wreck involving six vehicles at Portland Avenue. Things are inching along, so plan for 15 minutes or more to get past Portland.
