Firefighters were gaining ground on the Route fire burning in the Castaic area.
The fire caused monstrous back-ups on the 5 Freeway where two paths in every direction stay shut starting at Sunday morning.
Overnight, fire groups combat the blazes both from the air and the ground.
The 392-section of land fire broke out Saturday around 4 p.m. on the 5 Freeway one mile south of the Templin Highway.
