Brush Fire In Brentwood Burns Within 200-Feet Of Homes, Firefighters Say

The Brentwood neighborhood near the fire is dense with estates belonging to major Hollywood players. The flames spread to nearby brush, and now that brush fire is expected to be 50 to 60 acres.

The blaze burning Sunday in the Mandeville Canyon area above Brentwood sent up a huge plume of smoke visible across much of the Los Angeles basin.

Access was remote and hard, Stewart said, and no injuries have been reported.


"Residents in the vicinity have been evacuated as a precaution", D'Evelyn said, adding the number of evacuations is unknown. More than 100 firefighters battled the fire amid hot weather with light winds. Margaret Stewart an LAFD spokeswoman said the fire is in "very hard terrain, so it takes time".

LAFD crews responded at 11:30 a.m.to the fire, at 11200 Wheatland Ave., in Lopez Canyon, with the fire moving later to 11230 N. Dominica Ave.

A brush fire broke out early Sunday afternoon in Brentwood, with over 115 firefighters now on the scene according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.


It's unknown if the fire is still burning in the salvage yard.

The Los Angeles Fire Department issued an update just before 3 p.m. saying that moist air as well as water dropped from helicopters had helped contain the fire, which now covers about 20 acres. Smoke from that fire was noticeable as far as Reseda.
