A brush fire was reported in the Newhall Pass on Monday, resulting in a quick response from the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
The fire, dubbed the #FoothillIC, was first reported at 4:27 p.m. on Foothill Boulevard and Sierra Highway, according to Amanda Morales, a spokeswoman for the Fire Department.
At approximately 4:50 p.m., forward progress was stopped at a quarter-acre, but a handful of small spots remained for the onthe-scene personnel to extinguish.
