A vehicle caught fire on Interstate 5 northbound at Templin Highway Thursday afternoon, prompting a response from multiple fire units as the fire spread to nearby brush.
“It looks like it’s spread to the brush and is about a quarter of an acre,” said Capt. Ron Singleton of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
The first units arrived arrived shortly before 5 p.m., according to Singleton, who said traffic may be disrupted from lookie-loos.
Forward progress of the fire was stopped at 15 acres around 5:15 p.m., according to fire officials.
