As kids went trick-or-treating for Halloween Wednesday night, Los Angeles County firefighters doused a two-acre brush fire near Bouquet Junction in Saugus.
Dubbed the “Soledad incident,” the fire broke out in the brush behind the strip mall near the southeast corner of Soledad Canyon Road and Bouquet Canyon Road and was moving uphill toward the railroad tracks.
“We received a call at 8:37 p.m., units were dispatched at 8:39 and on scene at 8:44,” said Austin Bennett, L.A. County Fire spokesman, who said it was a first-alarm response with seven units and two fire-tenders dispatched.
Traffic was disrupted on Soledad and Bouquet Canyon roads and California Highway Patrol officers aided in traffic control, he said.
“A Metrolink train was delayed for about two hours,” Bennett said.
Firefighters aided by camp crews had the blaze 100 percent contained by 9:13 p.m., he said.
There were no reports of injuries or structure damage, and the cause of the fire is unknown.
