A fast-spreading brush fire causes thick clouds of smoke to cover parts of Santa Clarita.

The blaze broke out earlier this afternoon in the San Francisquito Canyon.

Firefighters from Los Angeles County are lending assistance to the U.S. Forest Service.

They’re also using a water-dropping helicopter in an attempt to contain the fire.

Nearly 200 acres have already been scorched and at least one structure has been burned.

At one point, power lines toppled onto a fire truck.

There are no reports of any injuries.
