UPDATE 10:28 p.m.

The Creekside IC brush fire was extinguished by the Los Angeles County Fire Department at 9:44 p.m. after having burnt between one to two acres in Canyon Country Saturday night.

“At 21:44 the fire was 100% contained,” said Supervisor Melanie Flores of the LA County Fire Department.

The blaze was a first alarm fire, Flores said, which means seven engines initially responded.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department Air Operations told The Signal that three helicopters were used to fight the blaze.

As structures were initially threatened, more units were requested. However, not all were needed in the fight.

“We requested a strike team that was already in the area, which is five more engines for structure protection,” said Flores. “But we never ended up needing them.”

Multiple strike teams had been placed around Santa Clarita due to the extreme fire danger presented by the Santa Ana winds projected to hit the valley this weekend, Flores confirmed. These units will remain in SCV as authorities brace for another day of high fire danger.

As of 10:12 p.m. Whites Canyon Road remains closed at Nadal Street. The fire was centered near Goodvale Road which branches off of Nadal.

“Its only still closed because they have all the fire equipment still there,” said Deputy Moody of the Los Angeles Country Sheriff’s Department.

Residents can assume the road will open as soon as the equipment is removed and the staging area broken down, Moody said.

There are no additional road closures and no evacuation orders issued as of 10:28 p.m. Saturday.
