Firefighters also tackled another brush fire reported near Lake View Terrace around 11:30 a.m. PT on Sunday. And with an onshore breeze carrying the haze northeast, the smoke soon became an irritant for residents in the Valley, including in nearby Encino and out in Reseda.
More than 115 firefighters are on scene, working to put out a 10-acre fire burning in Mandeville Canyon, near the Getty Center.
Mandeville Canyon Road was shut down at Sunset Boulevard to accommodate fire fighting operations, Stewart said.
LAFD investigators determined Sunday afternoon that the Brentwood fire was accidental and sparked during weed abatement efforts, which was being done to remove brush and avoid blazes such as the ones experienced in Los Angeles on Sunday.
The city fire department dispatched two water-dropping helicopters, and the county fire department employed another one, in addition to five camp crews to help the ground attack against the flames, Stewart said.
The area was expected to remain an active fire operation for at least the next 36 hours, she said.
"What families need to know is that they should listen to the authorities and if it's time to evacuate, they should do so", American Red Cross spokesman Collin Williams said.
3-4 acres of brush were found burning near a house on the block around 12:45 p.m., according to City News Service. Due to high winds in the area, the blaze, later dubbed the Joes Hill Fire, moved out of the yard and started a brush fire north of it. No injuries were immediately reported. Crews were sent to shut it off.
