A weed fire in Topanga Canyon was stifled on Saturday, firefighters still work controlling spotlights in the area

Los Angeles County fire teams put out a four-acre forest fire that broke out near 1200 N Topanga Canyon Blvd in Topanga Canyon on Saturday afternoon. There were no injuries or damage to the buildings.

The teams were "cleaning" the fire on Saturday night and investigators were at the scene to determine the cause of the fire, according to Los Angeles County fire captain Brian Jordan.

Topanga Canyon Boulevard, which had been closed to help firefighters quickly reach the fire, was partially reopened on Saturday night. A lane was reopened with CHP escorts.

"Our plan is to open Topanga Canyon as soon as possible," Jordan said. "Right now we are configuring to open only one lane."

The Los Angeles County Air Fire Operations Section had deployed helicopters that threw water to help fight the fire.

There is a red flag warning effective from 1 a.m. At 6 pm. Sunday for Ventura counties and much of Los Angeles, Santa Clarita and San Fernando, due to Santa Ana winds of 35-50 mph, relative humidity of 8-15% and temperatures of 85-95 °, which can contribute to the rapid spread of fires.
