Newhall brush fire burns 4 acres Wednesday night

Firefighters worked for more than three hours battling a brush fire Wednesday night, making sure they didn’t have a repeat of the Golden Incident fire which burned 100 acres earlier in the day. The night fire – which ended up burning four acres – broke out shortly after 9:30 p.m. Wednesday in the brush near the northbound lanes of Highway 14 and Newhall Avenue, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department said. Firefighters got to the fire shortly after 9:45 p.m., he said. An hour later, they reported the fire had burned four acres. About 10 minutes after midnight, they had the fire 100 percent contained. jholt@signalscv.com 661-287-5527 on Twitter @jamesarthurholt
