The fire was first reported shortly after 12:50 p.m., said Lt. Jim Royal of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

“This was for a strip mall, with light smoke seen coming from the roof,” Fire Department spokesman Marvin Lim said.

Firefighters “knocked down” the fire at 1:19 p.m., he said, noting the fire is not attributed to the Tick Fire or any of the large brush fires burning in Los Angeles County.

No one was hurt in the incident.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
