    Authorities believe aircraft debris spotted by firefighters on the site of a small wildfire in northern Los Angeles County Monday afternoon may be connected to the emergency landing of a second small plane on a nearby golf course.

    A single-engine plane made an emergency landing on golf course in Westlake Village shortly after 2 p.m.

    About 5 miles away, wreckage from a small-plane crash was found on scene of a blaze in the hills of Calabasas. The fire was quickly extinguished.
