OROVILLE, Calif. - Crews from the Oroville Fire Department made quick work putting out a small vegetation fire in South Oroville early Wednesday morning. Law enforcement also arrested someone nearby.

Dispatch from the Oroville Fire and Police Headquarters told Action News Now over the phone that firefighters responded to a fire that broke out near Lincoln and A streets at around 3:30 a.m.

When crews arrived they quickly put out the 20 x 20-foot size fire. 

Oroville police officers were also at the scene and arrested someone near the flames. Dispatch says that the individual was arrested based on existing warrants, not because of arson.

Currently, there are no reports of injuries or damage to any buildings.

Action News Now is still working to find out what sparked the fire and what the detained person's name is.
