Firefighters wasted no time extinguishing a “spot fire” near Highway 14 just north of Escondido Canyon Road Tuesday, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.

Shortly after noon, firefighters responded to reports of a brush fire about 200 feet from the northbound lanes of Highway 14, Fire Department Inspector Keith Mora said about 12:20 p.m.

“We put it out within 10 minutes,” he said, when asked for an update at 1:30 p.m.

The fire burned a 15-foot square area, he added.
