Firefighters jumped on a small, slow-moving spot fire on Vasquez Way and Sierra Highway, snuffing it out in 16 minutes.
The fire began shortly after 3:40 p.m. Thursday, prompting a response by several firefighting units assigned to two battalions, including at least three water-dumping helicopters and a bulldozer.
Firefighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department got to the fire scene at 3:53 p.m.
“It began as a 200- by 200-foot fire,” said Fire Department spokeswoman Vanessa Lozano.
“But, it was moving at a slow rate of speed,” she said, noting fire officials reported having stopped any forward advance of the fire by 4:09 p.m.
