Horses Are Released from Stalls as Fire is Contained at Lucas Ranch in Sylmar

A fire broke out last Wednesday afternoon about 12:30 PM.  Units from the US Forestry, LA County and the LAFD all converged on the 210 eastbound freeway just east of Paxton.  The fire was burning slowly along the 210 when the wind began to blow the fire towards the Lucas Ranch in the 11700 block of Kagle Canyon St. in Sylmar.  DWP and electrical contractor personnel saw the fire moving toward the ranch and went in and released the horses from their stalls.

No horses, structures or people were injured. Down the street, Petrelli Electric Company personnel were replacing DWP power poles with the new metal ones when they saw the flames being blown towards the ranches. Petrelli personnel pried open the locked gate and rushed in to relocate the trapped horses. None were injured. The LAFD stated that the fire was of undetermined origin, but there was a large gas weed mower sitting adjacent to where the fire started.
