Two tiny brush fires consumed close to 10 acres Sunday morning near Templin Highway, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.

Shortly before 9:20 a.m., Sunday, firefighters were dispatched to Templin Highway just off of the southbound lanes of Interstate 5, near Gorman, said Fire Department Supervisor Cheryl Sims.

“We had two small brush fires on the north and south side of Templin,” she said.

One fire consumed 8.3 acres and the other, one acre.

The fires were knocked down shortly after 10 a.m., Sims said.

“We have units on fire watch for the area now,” she said.

I drove by these fires going north bound and then southbound later in the day. Good work by the fire crews! Gosh, Jim, look at a map! These fires were way closer to (but not in) Castaic than they are to Gorman. In 20 miles between the fires and Gorman are little things like Paradise Ranch, Pyramid Lake, Highway 138 and Quail Lake, and the Hungry Valley Rec. Vehicle areas. The fire area is 5 miles north of Castaic, where I drove by a Forest Service and LA County tank trucks filling with water from hydrants to haul up to the fires. --edited.
