CAL FIRE says two acres of brush were burned along Highway 101 in the Five Cities area Tuesday afternoon.
The fire broke out just before 2:30 pm north of Oak Park Boulevard between the highway and the Orchard Supply Hardware shopping center.
Five Cities Fire Chief Mike Hubert first spotted the fire, contacted dispatchers and called for a first alarm.
Firefighters were able to get the fire under control in about an hour.
Five Cities Fire officials say there were signs of an encampment in a wooded area near the highway, but it has not been determined whether that had anything to do with the fire. Its cause remains under investigation.
