Initial reports estimated the fire to be 1/2 acre with a moderate rate of spread, prompting a first alarm response, according to a tweet from the Angeles National Forest.

San Bernardino County Fire is assisting Los Angeles County Fire and Angeles National Forest Firefighters as they work in triple-digit heat to contain the fire. Strong gusty winds are causing the smoke to blow towards the Lancaster/Palmdale area and away from the Victor Valley.
