Small brush fire ignited from Highway 14 car fire

A small brush fire was ignited on the shoulder of the northbound side of Highway 14 following a vehicle fire Saturday.

The call came in originally as a car catching fire at approximately 3:54 p.m.

“We got a report of a fully involved vehicle fire,” said Supervisor Ed Pickett  with the Los Angeles County Fire Department. “It caught a small bit of brush on fire.”

The blaze eventually grew to a 10-by-20 foot fire before fire personnel announced forward progress had stopped at approximately 4:10 p.m.

No injuries were reported as a result of the brush fire or car fire, according to officials.

Traffic is being affected in the area, despite the vehicle being on the right shoulder. However, despite traffic moving slower, California Highway Patrol personnel have not closed any lanes, according to Officer Stephan Brandt with the CHP Traffic Management Office.
