Name released of motorcyclist killed Sunday

The motorcyclist who died on Soledad Canyon Road in Agua Dulce was identified as Palmdale resident Dan Bullard, 55, according to the California Highway Patrol.

According to a report released Monday morning, Bullard was apparently traveling about 45 to 50 mph along northbound Soledad Canyon Road, about two miles north of Agua Dulce Road, when he veered off the road and collided with a rock embankment. After the collision, Bullard was thrown from his motorcycle and collided with the ground, causing fatal injuries. He was driving a 1997 Harley-Davidson.

Bullard was a sales associate at a Harley-Davidson dealership in Canoga Park. At the time of the collision, he was apparently leading a motorcycle run to Newcomb's Ranch restaurant in the Angeles National Forest.

His 12-year-old daughter reportedly lives in Valencia with her mother.

Applications received for commission seats

The city of Santa Clarita received two more applications for a spot on the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Commission, the City Clerk's office announced Monday.

The two applicants are Robin Bryce and Ryan Haslam. Friday was the deadline for applications. Bryce's application was received Monday, but was accepted because it was postmarked June 19. Haslam's application was delivered to the Parks & Recreation counter on Friday but was not given to the City Clerk's office until Monday.

A total of 13 people have applied to fill three open seats on the commission.

Two small fires quickly put out

One small brush fire in Saugus and another one in Canyon Country were quickly put on Monday afternoon, according to the county Fire Dept. Both fires occurred within minutes of each other.

Shortly after 4:30 p.m., a small brush fire, a little more than 1.5 acres in size, broke out in Saugus near the intersection of Seco Canyon Road and Decoro Street. The slow, downhill blaze was put out within 30 minutes, according to the Fire Dept.

Another spot fire erupted near Golden Valley Road in Canyon Country, yet that fire was put out within minutes, as well.

No one was injured in either fire, nor were any properties affected.
