Castaic mulch fire extinguished promptly

A tiny “ten by ten” mulch fire in Castaic could have been a brush fire if it weren’t for the swift actions of firefighters Monday morning.

Firefighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department were dispatched to a section of The Old Road near Hasley Canyon Road shortly after 8:30 a.m., Inspector Gustavo Medina told The Signal Monday.

“This was for a 10 by 10 (foot) mulch pile that caught fire on the 29300 block of The Old Road,” he said.

“The first engine on scene cancelled everybody,” he added, noting the firefighter was able to extinguish the tiny fire promptly.
