A brush fire broke out at approximately 2:15 this afternoon in the oil fields just north of Placerita Canyon Rd on Sierra Highway. Fire crews arrived on the scene immediately and used the oil field’s access roads to get to the top of the hill almost directly where the fire was burning.
Fire Officials: “It was a small fire, and the crews were able to knock it out pretty quickly.”
No damage to the oil field equipment has been reported. The fire burned roughly ½ acre.
