Brush fire burns in Angeles National Forest above Claremont
The blaze was 10 to 12 acres and burning chaparral about half a mile below the San Antonio Ranger Station, the U.S. Forest Service said.
Firefighters on the ground, including at least two hand crews, were trying to stop the forward progress of the blaze. They were being assisted by two air tankers and two water-dropping helicopters, officials said.
The blaze was reported shortly before 4 p.m. No additional details were immediately available.
