A small fire that broke out Saturday night in the Cajon Pass near Devore has burned 20 acres of brush.

The 20-acre Ken Fire began burning at 9:48 p.m. Saturday, just off the shoulder of the 15 freeway near the Kenwood exit.

The area isn't far from the location of the recent Blue Cut Fire, which chewed through more than 36,000 acres and destroyed 105 homes.

The U.S. Forest Service, San Bernardino County Fire and Cal Fire responded quickly to the blaze. By early Sunday, it was 25 percent contained. 

The right lane of the northbound 15 freeway remains closed but crews expect to have the fire fully contained by 6 p.m. Sunday.
