    The Escondido Fire Department was able to quickly contain a brush fire Saturday along northbound Interstate 15, just north of State-Route 78.

    The fire burned up to two acres in a grassy area between the two freeways, Escondido Fire Department officials said.

    A SigAlert was issued at 1:12 p.m. as the two right lanes of northbound I-15 were blocked. The SigAlert remained in effect until the fire crews were able to put out the blaze and mop up hot spots.

    Caltrans had to close SR-78 westbound connectors to both northbound and southbound I-15 while crews were mopping up.
