PESCADERO (CBS SF) — A vegetation fire closed down all lanes of Highway 1 from Pigeon Point Road to Gazos Creek Road in San Mateo County Thursday evening, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The Cabrillo Fire is currently holding at 95 acres and is burning about five miles south of Pescadero, near Ano Nuevo State Park at an old mushroom farm, Cal Fire said. It is burning in coastal brush and grass. The blaze began at 5:47 p.m. and is currently 25% contained, Cal Fire said.

No structures are threatened. Cal Fire said fire crews are expected to stay on scene overnight to work on containment. High winds exacerbated the fire initially but have since died down. Firefighters continue to build fire lines and mop up with favorable wind conditions and lessened fire activity, Cal Fire said.

All lanes of Highway 1 were reopened at 11 p.m.
