VICTORVILLE: North Fire Injures 2, Destroys 4 Homes, and 20 Vehicles on 15 Freeway

VICTORVILLE, California (Friday, July 17, 2015) – A blaze dubbed the North Fire erupted in the dry brush surrounding Victorville and Phelan. Traffic was closed on the southbound Interstate 15 Freeway and slowed considerably on the northbound side.

Mandatory evacuations were issued for the following areas: Sheep Creek Road; north of State Route Highway 138; west of Interstate 15 Freeway and State Route Highway 395; and south of Phelan Road. The evacuation center for residents was listed as the Serrano High School. Authorities stated that animals could be kept at the Victorville Fairgrounds.

The North Fire consumed approximately 3,500 acres throughout the aforementioned areas. The fire jumped the 15 Freeway destroying 20 vehicles and at least four homes in the process.

Approximately 60-70 vehicles were abandoned on the freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol. Fortunately, only two individuals have been injured. By mid-evening about 1,000 fire fighters fought to contain the destructive rampage of the fire, the Los Angeles Times reported, but they only had it five percent contained.
