Firefighters Wednesday completed efforts to snuff out a wind-driven brush fire that broke out near the westbound San Bernardino (10) Freeway in the San Dimas area.
The blaze was reported early Tuesday afternoon west of Kellogg Drive and was burning uphill, amid a red flag warning of high fire danger due to strong winds and low humidity, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
Spread of the blaze was stopped at about 3:10 p.m. and was 100 percent contained about 6 p.m. Tuesday, said Fire Dispatcher Miguel Ornelas.
Once the fire was under control, officials walked the area and confirmed it had burned 21 acres, Ornelas said.
Crews worked throughout the early morning hours Wednesday to douse hot spots, the department said. The department cleared its equipment from the scene by about 8 a.m., Ornelas said.
No injuries were reported.
