San Bernardino County Fire and U.S Forest Service firefighters responded to the incident and reported they had three small spot fires with the largest approximately 10×30.

Video sent to VVNG by Nataly Gonzales showed flames pushing upwards towards the hillside.

The no. 1 lane was closed while fire personnel worked to extinguish the fire and any hotspots.

CHP made contact with a vehicle just before the Highway 395 off-ramp. The driver cooperated with the officer before being allowed to leave.
