Acton fire fully contained at 52 acres; one outbuilding and car destroyed
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.
