A fire along the Calgrove off-ramp to Interstate 5 has burned about 20 acres of brush as of 3:45 p.m., fire officials said.

The fire has caused no injures and no property is threatened by the fire. It should be contained within a couple of hours, said Matt Levesque, an inspector with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

The fire began at around 2 p.m. and forced the California Highway Patrol to close three southbound lanes on Interstate 5 until 3:19, CHP officials said.
