Los Angeles County firefighters responded to a 2-acre brush fire, called the Sloan Incident, at the 29000 block of Barringer Road near Sloan Canyon Road in Castaic on Sunday.

After an initial response at 1:30 p.m., firefighters stopped all forward progress of the Sloan Incident, with briefly threatened at least one nearby structure, according to Art Marrujo, L.A. County Fire dispatch supervisor. Residents were not ordered to evacuate.

“One structure was threatened, but not any longer,” Marrujo said.

It was not immediately confirmed if this fire was caused by embers from the larger Sky Fire, located on The Old Road and Skyview Lane, according to fire supervisor Melanie Flores.

The Sloan Incident was approximately eight miles north from the location of the Sky Fire.

By 3:45 p.m., firefighters had the Sloan Incident fully contained, Flores said.
