Update [3:01 p.m.]: The fire has grown to 20 acres and the LAFD is operating three water-dropping helicopters to slow the fire's movement. The fire came within 200 feet of structures but firefighters performed a structural defense to remove the possible risk. No evacuation order is in place, according to the LAFD.

A brush fire broke out early Sunday afternoon in Brentwood, with over 115 firefighters currently on the scene according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. The fire is located in the 2900 block of N. Mandeville Canyon Road in Brentwood, northwest of the Getty Museum. 3-4 acres of brush were found burning near a house on the block around 12:45 p.m., according to City News Service. The amount has grown to 6-8 acres with winds at 5-10 mph. It's unclear whether any structures are in danger, and no injuries have been reported, according to ABC.

Firefighters are still on the scene, using equipment rerouted from a fire in the Angeles Forest as well as helicopter water drops, according to ABC.
