L.A. County Fire responded to two blazes early Sunday morning in the Santa Clarita Valley.

One was reported at the Embassy Suites in Valencia and was put out by a fire extinguisher.

The other was a 20 by 20 foot spot that was reported to be four miles north of Bouquet Canyon Road and Vasquez Canyon Road at 4:04 a.m. and was out on arrival.

The Embassy Suites fire was reported at 12:38 a.m. as smoke seen in the hallway on the fourth floor near room 424 according to L.A. County Fire. It was put out by fire extinguisher, although officials are unsure if a pedestrian or a firefighter put out the blaze.

Three units, an engine, quint and patrol, remained on scene to make sure the fire was fully extinguished. They became available again at 1:05 a.m.

“Probably the quint was kept one scene to make sure they use blowers to get the smoke out of the hallways,” said Supervisor Cheryl Sims with L.A. County Fire.

No injuries were reported in the fire.
