UPDATE: Brush fire burns 2 acres in Saugus

A firefighter from Fire Station 111 sprays water on a two-acre fire that burned up a steep slope under power lines Seco Canyon Road and Fig Court in Saugus.

 

 

Firefighters doused a brush fire that blackened two acres of a Saugus hillside and left a thick pall of smoke lingering above a neighborhood Thursday evening.

The fire burned on a steep hill covered with dry brush surrounded by homes east of Seco Canyon Road, west of Tamarack Lane and north of Hazel Street, a Sheriff’s Department official said.

“It didn’t appear that any homes in the area were evacuated,” a witness in the area said.

Firefighters from across the Santa Clarita Valley responded to the fire originally reported around 6 p.m. They had extinguished the flames at 6:44 p.m. and began clean-up operations just before 7 p.m., a Fire Department official said.

There were no reports of injuries or structural damage from the fire, but firefighters were still assessing the damage, the official said.

A series of power lines are at the top of the hill, the Sheriff’s Department official said.
