The Los Angeles County Fire Department issued a Red Flag warning for the City of Santa Clarita, which put a number of fire resources on heightened alert.

 

When the fire did break out today, helicopters and a strike team arrived immediately, and were able to call knockdown less than half an hour after fames were first reported.
