A vehicle fire in the Newhall Pass area spread to surrounding brush on the side of Highway 14 Tuesday.
Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel first responded to reports of a vehicle fire on northbound Highway 14, just north of Interstate 5 connector, in the Newhall Pass just before 1:30 p.m., according to spokesman Austin Bennett.
“It was originally a vehicle fire that spread to brush,” Bennett said around 1:45 p.m. “It’s at a quarter-acre now.”
By 1:53 p.m., firefighters on the scene reported the blaze had grown to a half-acre, and just minutes later, they announced forward progress had been halted at approximately 1 acre.
