    Firefighters are fighting the Ken Fire in the Inland Empire by ground and air on Sept. 3, 2016.

    A blaze that burned 20 acres of vegetation in San Bernardino County was fully contained by Sunday afternoon, officials said.

    The so-called Ken Fire in Devore burned east of the 15 Freeway between Blue Cut and Kenwood Avenue beginning around 10 p.m., officials said. 

    The fire was spreading moderately and was 25 percent contained as of 1 a.m. Sunday.

    The National Forest, San Bernardino County Fire and Cal Fire responded to the fire. 

    It was not immediately clear if any structures were threatened by the fire. 

    The fire forced a freeway closure on the northbound 15 Freeway at the 215 Freeway as it burned in a northeast direction, away from the mainline of the freeway. 

    All roads were reopened as of Sunday evening. 

    The Blue Cut Fire, which forced a closure of the Cajon Pass in August, forced thousands from their homes in the same area as the Ken Fire.
