A brush fire that broke out in the Silverado Canyon in the Santa Ana Mountains on Sunday has been put out, the Orange County Fire Authority said.

What is being called the Williams Fire burned just under three acres of state-owned area, authorities said.

The blaze broke out around noon and was stopped shortly after 1 p.m., according to the fire authority.

Firefighters were able to stop the rate of spreading quickly while they attempted to contain the fire, authorities said.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department had closed Santiago Canyon and Williams Canyon while battling the blaze, a spokesperson for the fire authority said.

More than 10 fire engines were at the scene, along with water dropping helicopters.

Crews responded to reports of a brush fire on Williams Canyon Road at noon, according to a series of tweets from the O.C. Fire Authority.
