A fire was burning in about five acres of grass and brush in the median of the Golden State (5) Freeway near Castaic Wednesday, and some lanes were blocked as a precaution.

The fire was reported about 11:40 a.m. south of Templin Highway, according to the California Highway Patrol and the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Shortly after noon, crews reported the forward progress of the fire had been stopped, but firefighters continued working to douse the flames.
