Firefighters on Saturday gained the upper hand on a wildfire northwest of Los Angeles that burned about 502 hectares of land, forced the closure of parts of a major highway and led to evacuations, fire officials said.

Hundreds of firefighters battled the blaze in the Solimar Beach area of Ventura County and were able to draw containment lines around 60 percent of the conflagration by Saturday evening, county fire officials said.
