Firefighters made a stand near the freeway about 10:45 a.m., stopping the flames from jumping the 101 after they originated at Mureau Road and Mountain View Drive.
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said residents of the Hidden Hills community should be set to leave if evacuation orders were ordered. Those orders never came.
