UPDATE: Firefighters Battle California Freeway Blaze That Engulfed Cars

Authorities say firefighters are making progress on a fast-moving wildfire that swept across a Southern California freeway, destroying 20 vehicles and sending motorists running to safety before burning at least five homes. The fire started Friday afternoon in the Cajon Pass along Interstate 15 — the main highway between Southern California and Las Vegas. It quickly spread to 3,500 acres. California is in the middle of severe drought, and wildfires are common. Some break out near freeways, but it's very unusual to have vehicles caught in the flames.
