Brush fire in Canyon Country stopped at 10 acres 


A brush fire that broke out Thursday afternoon between Canyon Country and Agua Dulce was stopped at 10 acres, according to L.A. County Fire Department officials. 

Firefighters were dispatched to the area near the intersection of Davenport Road and Wagon Wheel Road at approximately 5:25 p.m. on Thursday and arrived shortly after, according to Ed Pickett, supervising fire dispatcher for the Fire Department. 

Forward progress was stopped at 6:22 p.m., Pickett said, and firefighters were scheduled to remain in the area for a couple more hours for mop-up. 

One firefighter suffered a minor injury, but Pickett could not provide details on the nature of the injury. 

No structures are threatened and no evacuations were ordered. 

Pickett said the fire called for 50 firefighters, two airtankers and four helicopters, a typical response for this time of year. 

The fire had the potential to grow to 50 acres before being stopped, Pickett said.
