A small grass fire in Healdsburg turned into a traffic nightmare for afternoon commuters Tuesday: Northbound lanes on Highway 101 were closed at Dry Creek Road about 3:30pm. The fire burned less than 5 acres but at 5pm, CHP reported a multi-car crash in the same area that snarled traffic for the afternoon. That situation was finally cleared after 6pm.
