    Two small brush fires prompted a closure of the eastbound lanes of the 118 Freeway near Rocky Peak Road just west of Chatsworth on Tuesday, June 6, 2017.

    The eastbound lanes of the 118 Freeway between Yosemite and Rocky Peak were closed Tuesday afternoon due to a brush fire in Ventura County.

    The Ventura County Fire Department and the Los Angeles Fire Department were battling two small brush fires near Rocky Peak shortly after 3 p.m. 

    Smoke was visible from 5 miles out, according to the Ventura County Fire Department. 

    All lanes of the eastbound 118 were temporarily closed by the California Highway Patrol around 3:40 p.m. while officials battled the blaze. 

    The fire was 100 percent contained by 5 p.m. 

    No structures were threatened and no injuries were reported. 

    The freeway reopened around 5 p.m., but traffic was slow.
