Knockdown Called in Val Verde Brush Fire

A small brush fire broke out tonight in Val Verde, northwest of Santa Clarita Valley (LAist penned a history piece on Val Verde this summer). It was quickly put out by firefighters, but "several fires have been reported in the area recently," CBS2 reports on a homepage alert banner. A National Weather Service red flag warning is in effect until 8:00 p.m. Wednesday night.
