Just two hours after extinguishing a blaze on Interstate 5, firefighters worked on a separate brush fire on northbound State Route 14 on Saturday afternoon. 

Los Angeles County Fire Department firefighters responded to a vegetation fire on the freeway near Newhall Avenue just after 5 p.m., according to Fire spokesman Bernard Peters. 

“It’s at a quarter acre, light to medium brush, running uphill with winds of up to 5 mph,” he said at around 5:20 p.m. 

At approximately 5:30 p.m. firefighters doused the blaze, which grew to a total of 2 acres. There were no reports of structures threatened.
