Brush fire burns 20 acres, threatens homes in Acton
The blaze was burning slowly and had scorched about 20 acres in medium-to-heavy fuel, said Inspector Brian Riley of the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Television news footage showed at least one structure burning.
Three helicopters were making repeated water drops on the flames. The fire started just before 4 p.m. in the 4700 block of West Crown Valley Road in the Soledad Canyon area.
A cause of the blaze had not been determined.
