Orange County firefighters battled three brush fires that broke out Wednesday evening in Holy Jim Canyon (map), about five miles east of Trabuco Canyon, in the Cleveland National Forest.

The fires burned about two acres, officials said.

About 100 firefighters responded to the fire, according to Capt. Steve Concialdi of the Orange County Fire Authority.

A man at one of the burned-out cabins suffered first- and second-degree burns on his arms. He declined to be transported to a hospital, officials said.

Other cabins in the area were evacuated.

The cause of the brush fires is under investigation.
