The California Highway Patrol announced late Sunday that the all lanes of northbound State Route 14 are now open after a fire shut it down earlier on Sunday afternoon.
All lanes of State Route 14 had been closed as crew fought the fast-moving wildfire that was sparked when a car crashed in southbound lanes of the freeway. The Los Angeles County Fire Department says firefighters have quickly contained 50 percent of the blaze.
The fire has grown to about 870 acres according to the L.A. County Fire Department. Not all residents heeded officials' earlier mandatory evacuation orders, according to the AP.
