A wildfire has closed one lane of traffic on Highway 20, just west of the Santiam Pass.

The Oregon Department of Transportation said the fire was reported around 3 p.m. Tuesday in the Willamette National Forest at milepost 76 on Highway 20.

The fire reportedly began on the south side of the highway but crossed and is burning near Lost Lake.

The fire is estimated at about five acres. The cause is under investigation.
