375-Acre Oasis Fire Now 70 Percent Contained

PINION HILLS (CBS) — A blaze that scorched 375 acres on the LA and San Bernardino County line was 70 percent contained, a fire captain said Sunday.

The Oasis fire broke out just south of Highway 138 (the Antelope Freeway) off Oasis Road and south of Pinion Hills about 1:47 p.m. Saturday.

Los Angeles County Fire Capt. Mark Savage said no structures were threatened and no evacuations were ordered.

“There is no real active fire front and we will continue to mop up this fire,” he said. “But there may be some challenges today — the hot temperatures and repeat of the pattern of lightning that happened yesterday.”

Savage said crews expect to have the blaze fully contained sometime Monday, weather permitting.
