U.S. Fire Service firefighters move a hose line uphill on a 5-acre brush fire at Interstate 5 at Templin Highway on Saturday afternoon. The fire caused road closures and blockages on Interstate 5 Saturday.

 

Saturday was a busy one for firefighters as crews worked to quickly contain two small brush fires that broke out in the Santa Clarita Valley near Templin Highway off Interstate 5.

The two fires were reported early Saturday on the shoulder of northbound Templin Highway, said Los Angeles County Fire Department Supervising Fire Dispatcher Cheryl Sims around 1:15 p.m.

Crews were able to contain the fires to just under 13 total acres, said Los Angeles County Fire Department Supervising Fire Dispatcher Kyle Sanford at 2:30 p.m.

No structures were damage and no one was hurt as a result of the fires, Sanford said.

The fires temporarily blocked lanes of Interstate 5 in the area but the freeway fully reopened in the mid-afternoon, according to officials with the California Highway Patrol.
