At least two fires were reported Saturday evening on Highway 99 on-ramps in the Sacramento area.

The first fire reported, along Highway 99 near 35th Avenue, has stalled traffic and prompted response from the Sacramento Fire Department.

Caltrans District 3 tweeted at about 6 p.m. that the southbound Highway 99 on-ramp at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard was blocked due to a grass fire.

The blaze popped up on California Highway Patrol's incident tracker at 5:30 p.m.

At 7:03 p.m., the CHP incident tracker showed another reported fire, this one at the northbound Highway 99 on-ramp at Elk Grove Boulevard.

No other details were immediately available regarding re-opening of the on-ramps.
