Firefighters from both Los Angeles County and the Angeles National Forest service responded to a brush fire Thursday off of Interstate 5 near Templin Highway and, united, they snuffed the fire out within 75 minutes.
Inspector David Michel of the Los Angeles County Fire Department said reports of the brush fire — dubbed the Paradise Fire — were received at 3:09 p.m.
By 4:24 p.m., fire officials reported having stopped all “forward progress” of the fire.
Shortly after 3:10 p.m., the fire was described as “a half-acre fire moving through medium fuel (brush) at a moderate speed,” and 35 minutes later, described as having burned between 3 and 4 acres.
At 4:24 p.m., the fire was blamed for having burned between 5 and 7 acres.
Firefighting units from the county and the U.S. Forest Service deployed vehicles and manpower for a first alarm including the use of a couple of water-dropping helicopters.
No structures were reported as being threatened.
