KERN COUNTY, Calif. - Firefighters were able to fully contain a brush fire that broke out along the 5 Freeway in Kern County.
The so-called ‘Shell Fire’ ignited on the evening of Sunday, June 27, near the 5 Freeway and Grapevine Road, just north of Frazier Park.
The fire burned 1,984 acres, according to Kern County Fire, which was the leading agency.
Kern County Fire said that Air Operations were stopped for a time Sunday due to a drone flying over the fire.
"This hinders firefighting efforts and is dangerous," Kern County Fire wrote on Twitter. "Please, do not fly drones near wildfires."
The cause of the fire remained under investigation.
