A small brush fire is reported to have closed some southbound lanes of the 5 Freeway as it transitions to the 2 Freeway in Silver Lake, reports a resident who watched a report on ABC7. The fire appears to be in the median of the freeway.

The California Highway Patrol website reports that the southbound 5 was closed at Los Feliz Boulevard as of 4:27 p.m. Lanes to the southbound 2 were also closed.

* Update @ 5:10 pm: CHP reopened the southbound 5 shortly before 5 p.m. and canceled a SigAlert.
