A brave LAist operative sent in a photo of a fire in Burbank on N. Buena Vista Street and Victory. Early reports suggest a metal balloon hit the power lines around 3:30 p.m. blowing a transformer and igniting trees. Power is reportedly out in the area and there is some concern about the fire spreading to local businesses and properties. More as the story develops. Or (hopefully) doesn't.
