Heavy brush in the area of 8300 W. La Tuna Canyon near the neighborhood of Tujunga was ignited by errant flames and now the fire has grown to consume three-acres. The LAFD responded to the call shortly before 3 this afternoon, and believe it was "started by an auto fire," according to an email alert. "According to police reports, the fire is traveling uphill and is a half-mile away from homes," cbs2.com is reporting, but there have been no reported injuries.
