Small Brush Fire Breaks Out in Hills Above Sunlund-Tujunga
Shortly before 11:30, the Los Angeles Fire Department received a call of a brush fire in the hills of the San Gabriel Mountains seen from Foothill Boulevard. It is estimated to be 2-3 acres in size on the ridgeline. Temperatures in the San Fernando Valley are cool today, but winds are blowing in a southeast direction at a speed of nine, according to LAFD Spokesman Erik Scott. "It's too early to tell how much of a problem it's going to be," he said. UPDATE: As of 12:13 p.m., the fire had grown to around 5 to 7 acres. UPDATE #2: Firefighters called a knockdown around 1:15 p.m. 10 acres were burned with no structures damaged or injuries sustained.
