Dumpster fire clogs 101

MICHAEL COONS/The Acorn IN A CLOUD OF SMOKE-The upper torso of Los Angeles County firefighter Markus Voegler is in smoke as he works to extinguish a dumpster fire on the southbound 101 Freeway near Kanan Road on Tuesday morning. The dumpster, being hauled on a truck, was loaded with the remnants of a removed shake roof (wooden shingles) that ignited. The blaze snarled morning rush-hour traffic on the Ventura Freeway.
