Pacific Palisades Brush Fire Quickly Extinguished

A fire near Will Rogers State Historic Park was reported at around 2:00 p.m. today, but was put out in just under an hour thanks to the 64 firefighters on the scene.

The fire took place at 15060 Corona del Mar, near the Pacific Coast Highway and Temescal Canyon Road. According to the LA Times, PCH was closed between Chautauqua Boulevard and Channel Street while the blaze was battled, and a large plume of smoke was plainly visible in the area. The fire posed a brief threat to a known homeless encampment, but it did not threaten any structures nor lead to any evacuations. Ultimately the fire worked its way through about two acres of brush.

Although we're enjoying milder temperatures this weekend and less winds, we are due for another hot and dry period of "wildfire weather" next week and are not out of the woods--or brush--just yet this fire season.
