A brushfire burning in the Angeles National Forest near Lancaster is only 15% contained, but firefighters are optimistic the fire will be under control by tomorrow.

The fire has burned 250 acres northeast of Castaic Lake, threatened a hundred homes, and closed San Francisquito Canyon Road from Santa Clarita to Green Valley, but the fire has essentially stalled.

If you’re headed to the area, be aware of potential road closings for the next few days.
