The about 300-acre Osito fire was completely contained Wednesday, but authorities kept one lane on the northbound Interstate 5 freeway closed overnight as firefighters made sure the blaze stayed extinguished.

The far-right lane on the I-5 near the Vista Del Lago exit may be opened sometime today, officials said.

Emergency crews had kept the lanes closed since Monday, when the Osito fire erupted and swiftly charred about 300 acres. It was the largest blaze this year in the Angeles National Forest.
