1 of 2 fires north of LA contained

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) - A wildfire burning in the hills along Interstate 5 north of Los Angeles has been fully contained.

Los Angeles County fire officials said the 712-acre blaze was fully contained late Saturday after it broke out Friday and briefly threatened an elementary school and about 20 homes.

Another fire that broke out Wednesday near Frazier Park is 85 percent contained after consuming some 4,358 acres.

That blaze was not threatening any homes or buildings but fire officials say fighting it difficult because of the rugged and hard-to-reach terrain.
