All lanes open on freeway where bridge burned

HESPERIA, CA - All lanes of Interstate 15 in Hesperia have reopened after a fire on an overpass under construction.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the San Bernardino Council of Governments tweeted after 11:50 p.m. Tuesday that both directions were open.

The northbound lanes opened around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The fire began Monday afternoon when a blowtorch being used to cut metal reinforcing bars ignited support timbers. Wind gusts up to 35 mph fanned the flames.
