A slow-moving vegetation fire lit up nighttime skies and burned near homes in Wrightwood, prompting a response from multiple agencies late Wednesday.

It started at around 9:20 p.m. in the Flume Canyon area of the San Bernardino County community, said Nathan Judy of the Angeles National Forest.

Angeles National Forest, San Bernardino County and Los Angeles County fire authorities were protecting structures and preventing the flames from spreading to homes.

The fire, which stood at about two acres as of 11 p.m., was moving at a slow rate of speed and was burning in "favorable" conditions for firefighters, Judy said.

No structures were directly threatened and there were no evacuation orders as of Wednesday night.

There was no word of a knockdown as of early Thursday.
