57 Freeway closed as flames head toward Diamond Bar*

November 16, 2008 | 10:15 am

57 freeway closed at Lambert Road

That fire keeps moving north from Brea. The 57 Freeway was closed this morning between Lambert Road and the 60 Freeway as flames moved close. The concern is that the fire could hit the hillside communities in Diamond Bar, though it's still a ways away. A DC-10 is dropping flame retardant in the hills south of Diamond Bar, and fire ground crews appear to be staging near the 57.

Update: The Country Estates gated community in Diamond Bar being evacuating.
