[KHTS] – A brush fire near San Francisquito Canyon and Lowridge Place, north of Copper Hill Drive in Saugus, burned 15 acres before being contained, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The department received a call at 11:23 a.m. and full containment was reached at 12:32 p.m.

Homes were threatened, but no structural damage reported was reported.

Traffic Northbound on San Francisquito Canyon was rerouted to the Southbound side, but reopened as of 12:55 p.m.

No one was surprised by the fire since the National Weather Service issued a “fire weather watch” for the Santa Clarita Valley Sunday morning.

    We were hiking in Central Park and saw the smoke – then two super scoopers and a sky crane flew over, fire engine sirens in the distance and BAM no more visible smoke – comforting to know the fire crews are always there and ever vigilant.

  2. Renee says:

    WHAT????? Article says “No one was surprised by the fire since the National Weather Service issued a high wind advisory and red flag warning for the Santa Clarita Valley Sunday morning.” So we can assume wind = fire? How about someone at scvnews.com asking if there are any suspects? Or if Edison’s powerlines were to blame? Fire does NOT = fire. Come ON.

Late last year, top Democratic operatives wanted her chairmanship ended. Their problems: She is a big fundraiser, and ousting a woman from the upper ranks of the Democrats’ party would give bad “optics” that would foster problems with both women and Jewish donors. They had reason to be concerned.
