Monday Memo: Fire along I-5 … Sounders clearcut Timbers … Gun laws

Brush fire headache: Here’s hoping you didn’t get caught in the traffic tie-up caused by the brush fire that charred a hillside along northbound I-5 near SeaTac overnight.

Sounders get it done: They beat archrival Portland Timbers last night 2-0 at CenturyLink Field before a crowd of 64,207.

Speaking of soccer: Some 60 people were arrested in Buenos Aries during a large gathering of fans celebrating the nation’s second-place finish in the World Cup. Late Sunday night, police went after vandals who turned up at the event. The young people, with faces covered, responded by throwing rocks, destroying storefronts, tearing down streetlights and breaking into a theater.

Some fish: A California man caught a 482-pound, 95-inch halibut in Alaska, and while it was the biggest such catch, it didn’t set a world record … hmmm.

Columnist Jerry Large writes about a topic that most always garners a good deal of attention: Until we act on gun laws, we can’t move on from tragedies.

Weather: Still hot! Well, not quite as hot today (low 80s), but the temperature will be going back up on Tuesday. National Weather Service forecast
