The LADWP is urging residents to reduce energy if possible because the 8,000-acre Crown Fire is burning in an area of one of the utility's power transmission lines. Although the line has not been damaged, it does pass through the Leona Valley where the blaze is located. The LADWP this morning minimized power imports on the line and began generating power at in-basin power plants to deliver energy to the City as a precaution.
