Northbound Pacific Coast Highway lanes in the Pacific Palisades have

been closed with roughly a two-acre brush fire burning alongside the

freeway.

The fire was reported at about 3 pm near the 14800 block of the PCH.

There are reports of as many as 150 firefighters battling the blaze.

NBC

reports firefighters are gaining the upper hand over the flames as

crews are making water drops, but strong Santa Ana winds remain a

concern.
