On Sunday, October 21, 2007 at 5:50 AM, Los Angeles Firefighters responded in Automatic Aid to a reported brush fire just north of Porter Ranch. Though the fire was in Los Angeles County Fire Department jurisdiction, the Los Angeles Fire Department took command of the blaze due to high wildfire activity in the region.
At 9:00 AM, Los Angeles Firefighters declared the blaze 'contained' at no more than 20 acres. There have been no injuries. No structures were threatened or damaged by this blaze, and there were no formal evacuations.
The cause of the fire - which remained entirely outside the City of Los Angeles, is under investigation.
A pair of Los Angeles County Fire Department Brush Patrol units will remain at the scene today due to continuing high winds.
Local residents are encouraged to monitor local television and radio news for updates on this and other Southern California wildfires.
