An hour after the fire began, officials reported the fire burned 1 acre of brush. Fire crews were pulled off of the fire shortly after 5:30 p.m.

The fire was dubbed the Verde Fire as firefighters battled two other fires nearby — the Tick Fire, which had burned more than 3,900 acres as of Thursday evening, and the Tick Branch 10 fire in Castaic.

The Verde Fire began on San Martinez Canyon Road near Chiquita Canyon Road at the heart of the town.
