The Soledad Fire in Agua Dulce is nearly contained Friday after firefighters have been battling the blaze for five days, officials said.
The Agua Dulce fire has reached 94 percent containment burning about 1,525 acres as of Friday morning, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
A date for full containment of the Soledad Fire is unknown due to steep cliffs at the edge of the fire making it difficult for personnel to access, according to an incident update on Friday.
“The fire has not moved in days and mapping of the fire has determined that the majority of hot spots have been cooled,” said the incident update.
The Soledad Fire was first reported just before 3:30 p.m. Sunday, near Soledad Canyon Road and Rivers End Resort.
All evacuations from the Soledad Fire have been lifted, with residents returning to their homes on Monday, a day after the blaze broke out, according to the Fire Department.
No civilians were injured in the Soledad Fire, with one firefighter treated for injuries related to the blaze, according to the incident update.
As the fire continued to rapidly spread and threaten homes on Soledad, Aqua Dulce and Briggs Canyon Roads, firefighters quickly requested a third alarm response to assist in the firefight and to protect the surrounding homes.
Multiple firefighters from the Los Angeles County and City fire departments as well as the Angeles National Forest and Ventura County supported in getting the blaze contained.
As of Friday morning, eight engines, with 29 personal remain on the Soledad Fire, according to the incident update.Do you have a news tip?
