Fire crews knocked down a brush fire that broke out this afternoon (Monday, September 13, 2010) near Porter Ranch, and partially within GHNNC Boundaries.
The flames scorched about 15 acres, but no homes were threatened and there were no reports of injuries.
Firefighters were sent to the 19000 block of West Sesnon Boulevard about 1:50 p.m., said Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Crews in at least two air tankers were involved in the firefighting effort, according to a Porter Ranch homeowner, who — at the height of the fire — could see the flames from his kitchen window.
About 100 firefighters also were sent to the scene, along with three helicopter crews, according to Scott.
The fire was reported out about an hour after the blaze was first reported, Scott said.
