Sec. 5. The court in which a will is probated shall have jurisdiction to construe it.

When a petition for the construction of a will is filed during administration of the estate, notice of the hearing thereon shall be given to interested persons. If the estate has been closed prior to the filing of such petition, notice shall be given as in civil actions.
