The fire was reported near Powerhouse II, which was not far from a fire that started last year and torched more than 1,800 acres and dozens of homes.

“That was a concern and that’s why they got on it very quickly,” said Supervisor Cheryl Sims of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Winds moving about 15 mph southeast may keep smoke blowing in the area for residents temporarily.

Los Angeles County Fire Department firefighters are on scene to assist a 2-acre fire that was reported at Powerhouse and San Francisquito Canyon Road.

All aerial units were made available and U.S Forest Service officials worked closely with Angeles National Forest to get the incident under control quickly.

Fire officials are assisting U.S. Forest Service officials because the fire is in their area. County fire reported being dispatched at 10:39 a.m.

The location of the fire is in the Angeles National Forest.
