A brush fire was halted after burning 7.5-acres near Gorman Thursday, according to Martin Rangel, supervising fire dispatcher for the Los Angeles County Fire Department.  

Rangel said the fire was reported at approximately 5:40 p.m. near the intersection of Quail Lake Road and Copco Avenue — which is near the Interstate 5 and Highway 138 intersection.  

The fire prompted a large response by the Fire Department. A fixed-winged, two engine airplane dropped retardant in an effort to douse the blaze. An Erickson Sky Crane and twin-rotor hellitanker were also used to make water drops.  

Forward progress was stopped at approximately 7:15 p.m.  

No structures were threatened and no injuries were reported. The cause of the fire was not known, at the time of this publication.
