Traffic moving on I-5 as crews work to contain brush fire
California Highway Patrol officials said a section of highway at Lake Hughes Road was reopened about 8:30 p.m. Friday after it had been shut down for about seven hours as a precaution.
Firefighters said the blaze north of Santa Clarita was about 60% contained Saturday morning. The fire started about 1 p.m. Friday on the west side of I-5, north of Parker Road. It has burned an estimated 600 acres.
Firefighters said they plan to have the fire fully contained by noon Saturday. No injuries have been reported.
