A CalTrans employee was one of the first to arrive at the fire and used a fire extinguisher in an attempt to put out the fire, however, with strong winds, it quickly reignited.

US Forest Service firefighters requested that the California Highway Patrol close No. 1 lane on the northbound and southbound sides of I-15. Firefighters reported at 12:43 p.m. that they had extinguished the fire and would be able to clean it up. The rest of the responsible units were cancelled.

The cause of the fire is under investigation and additional information will be updated as it becomes available.
