Los Angeles County Fire Officials told the Media that the 871+ acre brush fire started this afternoon after a car crashed into a tree near by the Southbound lanes on the Antelope Valley 14 Freeway and Placerita Cyn Rd.
Authorities called in the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department to create road blocks inside the eastbound lanes of the Antelope Valley 14 Freeway and redirect traffic till L.A.Co. Firefighters could gain control of the brush fire which was burning on the sides of the 14 freeway and keep the more than 80 homeowners safe from personal losses. The L.A. County Sheriff's Department responded more Deputies to assist in evacuation efforts of local homeowners and businesses in the remote areas of where this great fire was burning. They also were establishing a inmate CAL FIRE security zone for the inmates from Fire camp to enter while keeping clear private civilian cars from entering this Inmate/Prisoner institutional Custody zone so Cal Fire inmates could lay down a fire line with hard hand crew labor skills and work inside a restricted zone guarded by law enforcement to keep out civilians from making contact with the C.D.C.R. prisoners.
Freeway Traffic was at a crawl as The L.A. Co. Sheriff's Deputies directed drivers off the freeway and re-routed them onto Eastbound Sierra Hwy where they then were cut off and had to be forced to U-Turn back onto the 14 Freeway 1 mile east of where they had exited the 14 to begin with. There was no where to go, Fire was everywhere and the authorities didn't want people to pull off the sides of the roads and park so they directed them on a path out of harm's way. Even though it was frustration all the way for drivers who were very tired from work and upset about being stuck in this traffic that made a mess out of their route back the Lancaster, CA. and Palmdale, CA. It is the only freeway there from San Fernando Valley.
Cal Fire crews battled the blaze through the night and mop-up operations continued into late Monday evening, reports stated on Tv and the Radio.

Las Virgenes Rd. stayed open which gets the traveler from these two destination, though it just takes about an additional 35 minutes unless there is heavy traffic on a Friday evening, which is always the case.
Inside the brush fire area, Cal Fire along with Multiple County Fire agencies assisted with the battling of this major fire with has been burning since yesterday around 2:00p.m. Firefighters said.
CAL FIRE used a ground water tank to fill up with 2,200 gallons of water that would enable them to pump it up the steep 300ft incline to any hot spot a crew member would need water to be sprayed. They had set this tank up as CAL FIRE Members are seen keeping the water levels supervised so when they need more water to fill up inside their Fire trucks, they can drive their truck to go fill it up at the nearest fire hydrant without worrying about lacking water supplies on the embankment where crews have dragged heavy hoses straight up a wall of slate, shale, old granit rock.
Amazing, these hard working First Responders! They saved the Topanga Cyn. Towns People’s homes from burning. If this fire took ground, and the winds were stronger, Topanga Town centered by the Lumber Yard up inside Topanga Canyon Road would of been all a memory and could have taken 100s of lives with it’s flames. hundreds of homes were in danger and CAL FIRE stopped those flames in their tracks, as soon as it was possible.

June 25 2017, 14 Freeway, Car Crashed into a Tree, Caught Fire.
The blaze had Firefighters and California State Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation send in their Fire crews to dig fire lines, carry large water hoses up the canyon into the hills to lay a close fire line that will gain control on this large scorcher before the gusts of winds and hot summer weather air shifted towards the mountains with the Oil wells.
Placerita Canyon Oil Fields were what the Los Angeles County Fire incident Command post were contemplating would occur if they couldn't control the fiery path.
The winds were gusting up to 30mph to the S/E and the fire had consumed more than 771 acres at this point. The fire was heading towards Placerita Oil Field.
Some 129 old wells connected and pumping active crude oil and if the fire were too close, those oil wells could possibly of caught fire so Cal Fire had those Correctional Department send in their Fire squad of inmates to water down that side of the mountain and draw a fire line between the two spaces where the oil fields are and the flames were raging.
It was a success and in this video, you can see at the Left of your screen, the Placenta Canyon oil fields pumping and next to them tow the middle of the screen above is the brush fire , flames and smoke top of the mountain trails where Cal Fire inmates are getting a containment on the upper hand of this more than 771+ acres burning off highway 14 in the Santa Clarita Valley part of Los Angele County, Calif.
The reported 300+ Firefighters on scene within the hour and more on their way to battle this long week's fire that took over four days to extinguish only two injuries were reported and no homes burned. One travel trailer was burned and some outter buildings also lost to this fire.
The fire started when a vehicle driving along side the 14 freeway had crashed head-on into a tree then burst into flames, catching the nearby dry brush on fire and leaded it into the trees where it got out-of-control.
