Chantry Fire: Nearly 6 acres burned in Angeles National Forest in Arcadia

Fire crews in Arcadia have contained a small brush fire that broke out during the 4th of July holiday weekend. 

The Chantry Fire broke out in Arcadia in the Angeles National Forest just after 3:30 p.m. Sunday. 

Fire crews worked overnight, including a helicopter that dropped water on hot spots within the fire’s perimeter. By Sunday night the fire had burned just under 6 acres.

The fire sparked as the U.S. Forest Service announced a high fire danger in the Angeles National Forest with a heat wave impacting Southern California for the holiday.

SkyFOX was over the scene as choppers worked to put out the fire Sunday. It was a smoky scene as buckets of water were dropped on the flames. 

Voluntary evacuations were in place due to the Chantry Fire, but no structures were threatened by the flames.

Cal Fire reported that the fire had been completely contained by 6 p.m. on Monday, July 3.
