A big fire that raged off the 405 Freeway in the North Hills area of the Valley this afternoon is now fully contained, the LAFD says.

The fire is near the Devonshire exit at the 405-118 interchange.

High winds spread the blaze to two acres, so firefighters brought in air power to drop water on it.

The fire department says that brush and trees next to the freeway burned.
