A small brush fire broke out Wednesday afternoon near the junction of the 91 and 241 freeways. Orange County fire officials said the two- to three-acre blaze was not threatening any homes, and helicopters were on the scene dropping water, but that the fire was in a heavy brush area difficult for firefighters on the ground to reach.

The Orange County Fire Authority dispatched 18 engines and 75 personnel to fight the fire, spokeswoman Tasha Schilling said.
