Brush fire by Castaic contained, but 5 Freeway lanes still closed
The shutdown prompted the California Highway Patrol to issue a Sigalert that was still in effect after 6 p.m.
The brush fire was sparked by a big-rig that caught fire shortly before 3:30 p.m., officials said.
The blaze burned about 30 acres in the Angeles National Forest before it was contained by crews from the U.S. Forest Service and Los Angeles County Fire Department.
No structures were threatened, officials said, and no injuries were reported.
