A major interstate linking Southern California and Las Vegas remained closed Monday, but homes were no longer threatened by a wildfire that erupted in a mountain pass.

The 350-acre fire in Cajon Pass was 5 percent surrounded by late Monday afternoon, and news helicopters overhead showed little smoke.

Plans were in the works to reopen Interstate 15 later in the day, said California Highway Patrol Sgt. Billy Rangel.

The fire broke out as the region baked under the influence of a Santa Ana condition producing hot, dry air, winds of 10 mph and gusts of about 25 mph.

Evacuations had been ordered in an area known as Mathews Ranch.
