Fire Affects Road To Vegas
Travel from the main road between Southern California and Las Vegas was affected yesterday by a brush fire along the Cajon Pass. The “Press Enterprise” says the blaze along I-15 near the town of Devore tied up freeway traffic in both directions for hours, forcing drivers to detour away from the area. At least 350 acres were affected, and power lines fell across I-15, striking two big rigs. The cause is still under investigation, but crews expect to have full containment by tonight.
