Emergency: Wildfire strikes cars on I-15 north of Los Angeles, traps motorists now; warn if possible

There is an unprecedented highway danger on I-15 north of Los Angeles (the main highway to Las Vegas, which I took in May 2012) through the El Cajon pass.  CNN reports live now.  A wildfire has ignited cars on the freeway, spreading, and trapping motorists.  Cell reception in the area is poor.
KTLA has a developing story and video here

If you know someone driving in this area, let them know if you can get through.  This is a life-threatening hazard.
I recall being “trapped” by an accident on I-95 near Philadelphia, which I wrote about July 6.  But that is nothing compared to this.
