Firefighters quickly extinguished brush fires in Val Verde and Castaic Saturday before they could grow beyond 2 acres each.
Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel first received reports of a vegetation fire at around 9:09 a.m. on the 29900 block of San Martinez Road, a spokesman with the Fire Department said.
As of 9:35 a.m., the fire grew to 2 acres of medium brush burning uphill and with a potential for 10 acres, according to department officials.
“No structures currently threatened,” read a tweet from the Fire Department at 9:25 a.m.
Just before 9:40 a.m. crews declared forward progress had stopped.
“Forward progress of (the) fire stopped at 2 acres,” the Fire Department updated, adding that all fixed-wing aircraft had been canceled.
No injuries or structures threatened were reported.
Crews later responded to a brush fire in Castaic at around 4 p.m., near Templin Highway and Interstate 5.
The fire was doused fast about 30 minutes later after burning 1 acre, according to county Fire Department officials.
