First units on the scene reported approximately one-quarter acre of light grass and brush burning on a hillside moving in the direction of several homes.

Firefighters immediately went to work, putting handlines into operation, and making a stand at several structures located above the fire.

The aggressive tactics of the men and women of the LAFD, aided by helicopter water drops, contained the fire to the light flashy fuels alone leaving no homes immediately threatened.

The fire was extinguished in just one hour and twelve minutes and contained to approximately three acres only.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.

Yes. I was there. It's interesting to be on the front lines and see the hard working people of the LAFD.
