DEVORE, California — A brushfire in the Cajon Pass has shut down two lanes of a major Southern California freeway but there are no injuries or damage reported.
U.S. Forest Service spokesman John Miller says the 7-acre blaze briefly threatened buildings near Interstate 15 before fire engines arrived to protect the structures.
The fire began around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday off the northbound Interstate 15, the major route linking Southern California and Las Vegas. Traffic is moving except for two northbound lanes.
About 120 firefighters, aided by a helicopter, are fighting the blaze as it moves up slopes in the mountainous Devore area east of Los Angeles. The fire was 25 percent contained Tuesday night.
There's no word on what caused the blaze.
