SAN DIEGO - A fiery crash Wednesday on Interstate 8 in the Mission Valley area snarled traffic during the morning commute.

At least three vehicles were involved in the accident shortly after 7:30 a.m. in the westbound lanes near Morena Boulevard, one of which caught fire, according to the California Highway Patrol. No one was injured.

Wrecked vehicles and debris temporarily blocked three westbound lanes and prompted a Sig Alert, but all lanes were reopened shortly before 9 a.m., according to the CHP.
