ACTON, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters aided by water-dropping helicopters are battling a 5-acre brush fire in Los Angeles County that has already burned at least one structure.

   The fire erupted at 11 a.m. Thursday in the semi-rural area off State Route 14 north of Los Angeles and threatened scattered structures.

   County fire Inspector Matt Levesque says 200 firefighters are assigned including a structure-protection group.

   Weather is hot — in the 90- to 100-degree range — but winds are light.

   Levesque says many of the homes in Acton have good brush clearance but there is heavy vegetation in the area.
