Three other small brush fires were extinguished last week as well: one that burned on the side of the road between Wofford Heights and Lake Isabella, one in South Lake on Rocky Hill, and one on Nugget Ave. in Lake Isabella. Fire crews were quick to respond, and none of the fires grew above 10 acres. The causes of these fires are under investigation.
