A brush fire that broke out in the Santa Clarita area amid fierce Santa Ana wind conditions was 100% contained Friday, after blackening 184 acres.
The fire was reported at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in light-to-medium brush near the 24000 block of The Old Road, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
Winds of 20-25 mph were reported in the area when the fire started, with much stronger gusts recorded in the area later Tuesday.
Crews hiked with hose line about a mile from the road to reach the area where the fire started, Los Angeles County Fire Department Inspector Sean Ferguson said.
The fire was extinguished about 2:30 Friday afternoon and crews cleared the scene, said Supervisor Melanie Flores with the fire department.
