Full list of North Fire road closures and evacuations

This map shows where the North Fire broke out in the Cajon Pass between Highway 138 and Oak Hill Road on Friday, July 17, 2015.

A fast-moving brush fire forced the closure of all lanes of the 15 Freeway between State Route 138 and Oak Hill Road in the Cajon Pass Friday afternoon, torched several vehicles and prompted mandatory evacuations.

The fire burned at least 5,450 acres just north of State Route 138. Caltrans advised commuters to avoid the area because heavy delays were expected.

All lanes on the 15 Freeway were temporarily shut down between State Route 130 and Oak Hill Road. They were reopened in both directions on Saturday.
