Two Of Three Brush Fires Near Quail Lake Knocked Down

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say two of three small brush fires along Highway 138 near the 5 Freeway are out, and crews are making good progress against the third.

Los Angeles County Fire Capt. Frank Reynoso says the fires were
sparked near Quail Lake Saturday afternoon, "possibly from a truck
backfiring."

He says the first two fires were knocked down quickly. The third
fire grew to two acres and is being fought with the help of water-dropping aircraft.

No structures are threatened and no roads are closed.
