September 8, 2009 5:48:51 AM PDT
Firefighters got a blaze in the Newhall Pass under control in less than an hour on Monday. The fire broke out in Santa Clarita near the 5 Freeway at Calgrove Boulevard at 9:43 p.m.

Some downed power lines sparked the fire, which spread to nearby brush.

Crews using hand lines and shovels knocked it down quickly. It scorched just over two acres.

The 5 was shut down as crews battled the flames, but the freeway has since reopened.
