A brush fire that burned more than 100 acres near Gorman on the weekend was apparently caused by the overheated undercarriage of a work truck, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

“I’ve talked to the detectives in Santa Clarita and they said it was a worker’s vehicle and its undercarriage,” said spokeswoman Nicole Nishida.

“That’s the suspected cause,” she said.

The fire that erupted near Gorman on Friday was 100 percent contained Saturday night after burning 109 acres, Inspector Bernard Peters of the Los Angeles County Fire Department said Sunday.

No homes were reported destroyed or damaged and no injuries were reported in the blaze that broke out Friday afternoon off Highway 138.
