A brush fire in the Wildwood Canyon hills above Burbank broke out Wednesday afternoon.

The fire prompted an evacuation order of Wildwood Canyon and Stough Canyon parks, as well as residents along Country Club Drive, by the Burbank Police Department.

The Burbank Fire Department is currently battling the blaze with the Los Angeles County Fire Department assisting, a representative for the LACFD told LAist.

According to NBC LA, the fire is currently estimated at three acres. In late June, a fire in nearby McClure Canyon caused a similar evacuation.
