Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel responded to a vegetation fire in the Newhall Pass Thursday morning.

Firefighters responded to reports of a vegetation fire around 10 a.m. on northbound Interstate 5, near the Highway 14 intersection, in the center median, according to L.A. County Fire Department spokesman Sean Ferguson.

“It’s just a small, little spot, reports were ⅛-acre in size,” Ferguson said. “Looks like we’re getting water on it now. It’s less than an acre in size. Initially, we sent a full brush response, but units are being canceled now.”

Units were expected to remain on the scene for another 45 minutes, until approximately 11:30 a.m., the post read.

No injuries were reported as a result of this incident.
