Orange County brush fire burns about 15 acres

A brush fire burned about 15 acres Thursday afternoon in the city of Orange, but firefighters have gained the upper hand, authorities said.

Santiago Canyon Road, however, remains closed from the 241 Toll Road to Irvine Lake.

The fire broke out near the toll road and Santiago Canyon Road about 4:10 p.m. Full containment is expected by late Thursday night, said Orange County Fire Authority Battalion Chief Kris Concepcion.

About 100 firefighters, three helicopters and two fixed-wing aircraft responded to the fire.

No homes or structures were threatened.
