A brush fire blackened about an acre of land beside Highway 14 in Canyon Country shortly after noon today, a fire official confirmed.

About 12:20 p.m., firefighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to a small grass fire on the right shoulder of the highway near Soledad Canyon Road, said Inspector Tony Imbrenda.

By 12:35 p.m., firefighters had contained the fire and held it to about an acre.

The fire was touched off by a single-vehicle rollover crash on the freeway, officials said.

U.S. Forest Service firefighters and a county helicopter contained the blaze.
