Firefighters gain control of blaze near Agua Dulce

Firefighters have gained control of the 30-acre brush fire near Agua Dulce Canyon Road and the 14 Freeway, and homes in the area are no longer threatened, officials said.

According to Capt. Mark Savage of the Los Angeles County Fire Department, the fire -- which was first reported at 2:47 Saturday afternoon near the Vasquez Rocks county park -- was no longer spreading.

Some northbound lanes of the 14 Freeway remain closed, officials said.

More than 250 firefighters attacked the fire, whose source is under investigation.
