A brush fire broke out in Canyon Country early Wednesday afternoon, prompting a quick response from the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
The fire was first reported near the corner of Penlon Way and Soledad Canyon Road at approximately 1:28 p.m.
“The initial report was a small fire on the side of the road,” said Jonathan Matheny, a spokesman for the Fire Department. “Our first-in units reported a quarter-acre fire moving uphill.”
However, because of the quick response, the called-for response was downgraded as firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze.
