The fire containment line is currently at 55 percent, and firefighters are expected to be conducting mop up all night, Judy said.

The fire burned 50 acres, and threatened a nearby mobile home park. No homes were lost, and no evacuations were ordered, he said. No injuries were reported.

A brush fire that started with a big rig that caught ablaze and spread to nearby roadside brush quickly consumed nearly 30 acres, and is now threatening Paradise Ranch Mobile Home Park in Castaic, fire officials said.

The big-rig fire was first reported at 3:37 p.m., according to Fire Inspector Tony Akins of the Los Angeles County Fire Department. 

“A full first-alarm response has been requested,” Akins said. “Los Angeles County Fire and Angeles National Forest Service units responded.”

There is medium to heavy fuel reported, and fire officials did not have updated wind conditions.

The fire is currently under the Forest Service command, according to Stephanie English, Fire Department spokeswoman.

The department has multiple aerial vehicles mobilized, and the winds are not a serious threat right now. 

The No. 2, 3 and 4 lanes were closed on the northbound side of Interstate 5. One lane is currently open. 

There was no report of a containment percentage as of 4:27 p.m., Akins said. More than 120 firefighters were on the scene.

Initial reports were a 15-acre fire, which has quickly grown, English said.

The mobile home park was the only housing unit in the area, Akins said. No other structures were reported as threatened and no evacuations have been ordered, yet.

The brush fire is being called the Highway Incident by Fire Department officials.

A second fire, a 2- acre brush fire was reported at 1:45 p.m. Monday near Avenue Stanford, close to Rye Canyon Road, fire officials said.

“The cause is not known, yet,” said Stephanie English, L.A. County Fire Department spokeswoman. “It is possible that a transformer is down, but they are investigating it further.”

Fire engines were on scene within about five minutes, she added.

Several fire stations were called onto the scene, including Station 73, 76, 124 and 149.

No structures were threatened and no injuries were reported, English said.

The fire is in the mop-up phases, which is expected to take another hour or so, she said.
