Rams cancel practice as fires rage in Southern California

Updated: 09-11-2018 22:08 IST

The Los Angeles Rams called off Friday's practice in Thousand Oaks, Calif., due to devastating wildfires in the region.

The wildfires have caused mass evacuations, property damage and led to road closures that would affect several people within the organization.

Los Angeles County Fire officials announced early Friday that the 101 Freeway was closed and that one of the fires had torched some 8,000 acres and with zero containment.

That fire began Thursday afternoon and had jumped the freeway just 12 minutes later.

The Rams (8-1) are currently still slated to play host to the Seattle Seahawks (4-4) on Sunday at the Los Angeles Coliseum in a rematch of a Week 5 game in Seattle.

The Rams held on to win that game thanks to a gutsy quarterback sneak by Jared Goff on fourth down late in the game.
