A brush fire has broken out in Griffith Park. The blaze is about 5 acres in size, but no structures are currently threatened, notes a Los Angeles Fire Department alert. The fire is "burning between LA Zoo & Los Feliz," and a "Plume of white smoke [is] visible from I-5," while "multiple helicopters," are on scene, according to abc7's Twitter feed. [Update: The fire was knocked down in 59 minutes, more info here]
