A brush fire in Acton that started about 11 a.m. Thursday was fully contained shortly after 3 p.m., a Los Angeles County Fire Department official said.

The fire burned 52 acres near the 14 Freeway and Hubbard Road; earlier estimates had put the fire area at 100 acres.

An outbuilding and a car were destroyed, said Inspector Matt Levesque. Several homes were briefly threatened but none was damaged.

More than 200 firefighters and four water-dropping helicopters were dispatched to fight the blaze, Levesque said.
