Firefighters quickly contained a brush fire that broke out in Chino overnight. 

The fire was reported near Prado Regional Park at around 12:30 a.m. 

Crews were able to extinguish the blaze before it could reach an acre's worth of growth, and Chino Valley Fire Department speculated that it could have been caused by a mylar balloon coming in contact with power lines in the area. 

As a result, several residents in the area lost power, which has since been restored.
