Brush Fires Blaze Through L.A.
Los Angeles is currently under a state of emergency as brush fires have burned close to 6,000 acres in the Burbank/Glendale area and the La Tuna Canyon near the Verdugo Mountains. As of Tuesday, 70% of the fire had been contained thanks to swift action by Los Angeles Fire Departments working through the weekend. The fire, which started last Friday, caused the evacuation of more than 700 residents and the shutdown of several miles on the 210 Freeway, but the Freeway was opened and evacuations ceased, both on Monday. Several sources stated that this fire has been the biggest in L.A.’s history, and it was most likely caused by a heat wave as there is no evidence of arson.
