MENIFEE - A fire scorched brush alongside Interstate 215 and prompted a Sigalert on Saturday, Sept. 22.

The fire was reported just after noon off the southbound side of the freeway, just north of Newport Road.

The California Highway Patrol reported that the fire was burning on a hill and was very close to the freeway.

The number three lane was blocked on the southbound Interstate 215 and a Sigalert was issued while crews from the Riverside County Fire Department battled the blaze.

The road was re-opened at 2:16 p.m.

The exact size of the fire was not immediately available.
