The Sand Fire, which broke out near the Sand Canyon Country Club on Wednesday, was reportedly held to a fraction of what firefighters initially thought it could grow to.
The fire that broke out at approximately 5:41 p.m. near Sand Canyon Road and Robinson Ranch was initially reported as having the potential to grow to upwards of 10 acres.
Aero units and ground units from the L.A. County Fire Department were dispatched to fight what was believed to have been catalyzed by a burning mulch pile.
At approximately 6:05 p.m., officials on the scene estimated that it had grown to 2.5 acres, according to L.A. County Fire Department Supervisor Tim Amaya.
However, at approximately 6:17 p.m., personnel walked back the earlier estimate, and announced that forward progress on the blaze had been stopped at approximately 1 acre, Amaya later added.
No injuries were reported nor structures threatened.
A handful of engines and firefighting crews remained on the scene as of 6:50 p.m. in order to mop up and ensure small flare-ups were quickly extinguished.
