Vehicle Carrying Ammunition, Firearms Catches Fire After Colliding With Big Rig On 5
A car carrying ammunition and weapons started a brush fire after crashing into a big rig on the 5 freeway, prompting the closure of all southbound 5 Freeway lanes north of Santa Clarita.
Around 4:30 p.m. Monday, emergency responders received reports of a crash on the southbound 5 freeway at Templin Highway in Angeles Forest north of Castaic,, which spread into a small brush fire that has been stopped, according to officials on scene.
“There was a vehicle engulfed in flames and a small spot brush fire,” said Melanie Flores, a dispatch supervisor with the Los Angeles County Fire Department. “CHP advised that there is ammo and firearms inside the vehicle.”
As of 5:10 p.m., officials had not received reports of any injuries.
“We’re keeping the squad and ambulance just to confirm that there are no injuries,” Flores said.
As of 5:15 p.m., all lanes of the southbound 5 freeway at Templin Highway are closed as crews work to fully extinguish both the brush and vehicle fire, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Late post
Ammo not loaded in firearms is just pops when it goes off.
Fire crews can do face blast shield down, and coat on.

Nice for the owner to provide safety crew info.

Hope everyone is ok
