A sigh of relief for Los Angeles. "It took the combined efforts of more than 400 FF's just 7 hrs and 25 min to extinguish all visible flame," LA Fire Department Spokesperson Brian Humphrey announced at 8:23 a.m. The fire burned around 100 acres and there were no injuries and no structures damaged. Now the investigation for the cause is underway. Shortly before 5:00 a.m., officials were unsure what way the fire would go. Cautiously Humphrey said in an LAFD Alert that " the possibility of winds at dawn make this very much a wildfire."
