A small brush fire that broke out inside Tick Canyon on the extreme east side of the Santa Clarita Valley was quickly extinguished by firefighters Monday morning.
Firefighters extinguished the small fire within three minutes of their arrival.
The fire was first reported to officials with the Los Angeles County Fire Department shortly after 10:35 a.m. Monday on the 29000 block of Florabunda Road, north of Grand Canyon Road.
“Initially, the call came in as a brush fire,” a Fire Department spokesman told The Signal.
Firefighting units dispatched to the fire at 10:40 a.m. included a couple of water dumping helicopters and firefighting crews from Fire Stations 107 and 123.
When firefighters arrived, however, they found a “small spot fire,” the spokesman said.
“They confirmed it was just a small spot fire,” he said.
Firefighters snuffed out the fire within three minutes of arrival.
