Firefighters battling two local brush fires in triple-digit heat Wednesday were dispatched to a third fire before their day was done.
Shortly before 4:30 p.m., firefighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department were called to a grass fire on the 23600 block of Wildwood Canyon Road, near the Wildwood Canyon Open Space.
“A man called stating he had a grass fire in his backyard,” Fire Department spokesman Sky Cornell said.
Deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to the call and confirmed for fire officials a small grass fire.
Firefighters, who had knocked down a fire near The Master’s University and then a small fire in the Newhall Pass, promptly got the grass fire under control, Cornell said.
