The fire broke out shortly after 11:30 a.m. Saturday morning and burned 156 acres, said Art Marrujo, dispatch supervisor with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Water-dropping helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft responded to the blaze, which burned not far from the 5 Freeway.

No injuries were reported and no structures were damaged in the fire, Marrujo said.
