The Los Angeles Fire Department had two larger events during the 11 a.m. hour this morning. The first was near Silver Lake on Fletcher near Riverside Dr. where about one half acre of grass and brush burned near structures, but firefighters were able to knock it down in just less than 20 minutes at 11:43 a.m. No one was injured and no buildings were damaged. On Westwood Blvd. near the 10 Freeway, a car crash left one person dead, four injured and two or three dogs with unknown injuries. Three people, including the deceased, were trapped in their vehicle before units arrived on scene to rescue them.
