The northbound lanes of the San Gabriel River Freeway were closed most of Tuesday as crews worked to clean up an oil spill. A California Highway Patrol spokeswoman said it took until the evening to finish the cleanup and make the freeway safe for travel. The road closure is the result of a Monday morning accident in which a tanker and a moving van collided near Telegraph Road, said CHP spokeswoman Shirley Gaines.

A brush fire burned about 40 acres east of the Golden State Freeway on Saturday afternoon, forcing the partial closure of the California 126 because of heavy smoke. At least 200 firefighters and four water-dropping helicopters battled the fire, which began about 1:45 p.m., said Los Angeles County Fire Department Battalion Chief Jack Ricci. The fire, driven up a hillside by a slight wind, spread northeast before it was contained, about an hour and a half after it started.
