Three-acre fire slows I-5 traffic

Posted: June 8, 2008 1:30 a.m.
Updated: August 9, 2008 5:02 a.m.
 
A 3-acre grass fire erupted Saturday morning just off the right hillside shoulder of northbound Interstate 5 at the 2,000-foot level. Fire crews fought the Turn Incident, which burned along the rugged, mountainous gap between northbound and southbound lanes of I-5 approximately 2 miles north of Lake Hughes Road in Castaic, for nearly one hour.

According to Batallion 6 Fire Chief Michael Flocks, the fire started just before 11 a.m. Saturday. About 80 county firefighters and crew members assisted in dousing the blaze.

Traffic along north I-5 was backed up approximately one mile, as fire crews blocked the right shoulder and the two right lanes in order to extinguish the fire.
