A series of small spot fires caused a brief scare off the 118 Freeway in Simi Valley.
The three blazes were discovered just before 1 p.m. yesterday, off the eastbound lanes of the freeway, between Kuehner Drive, and Rocky Peak Road.
Ventura County firefighters knocked down the small blazes in less than an hour.
No structures were threatened, or damaged.
There’s no word on the cause.
