A vegetation fire on the Panorama Bluffs Wednesday afternoon burned five acres before it was brought under control, Bakersfield firefighters said.

Battalion Chief John Frando said the department received calls around 3 p.m. reporting the blaze and that it was headed toward several structures. Firefighters managed to protect those structures and bring the fire under control in about 25 minutes.

The fire was east of Manor Street, Frando said. No injuries were reported.
