September 03, 2003|From Staff and Wire Reports

Lightning apparently started three brush fires Tuesday, the largest of which briefly threatened homes.

The first started about 5 p.m. in Palmdale at City Ranch Road and Ranch Center Drive. It burned about five acres and was out in less than an hour.

A blaze near Acton also was quickly extinguished.

But firefighters required the help of aircraft to fight a blaze on Valley Sage Road in Acton. The fire threatened scattered homes and burned 10 acres before it was contained.
