LAKEPORT – Firefighters quickly contained a small wildland fire along Highway 29 Thursday afternoon.


The fire was reported at about 2:30 p.m. less than a mile north of Juvenile Hall on the west side of Highway 29 near the Nice-Lucerne Cutoff.


A firefighter reported finding a red gas can in the burned area.


Agencies responding included Lakeport Fire Protection District and Cal Fire.


One helicopter, one fixed-wing aircraft and one dozer were among the equipment sent to the fire, although the fire was controlled so quickly the helicopter did not conduct a fire drop.


The fire was under control by 3:15 p.m. About three and a half acres were burned.
