A small fire covered about five acres at the Kern National Wildlife Preserve on Sunday night that officials say did not harm any animals.

The fire was reported at about 9 p.m. about four miles west of Corcoran Road and Garces Highway.

An official with the preserve said even though the fire was in an area dedicated to endangered species, it was unlikely any of them were harmed.
