Firefighters Attack Small Brushfire in Sunland

SUNLAND (CNS) – Firefighters continued their work Monday morning to put out a quarter-acre brush fire in a hard-to-reach part of the Sunland area of Los Angeles.

The fire was reported at 10:55 p.m. Sunday around 11250 N. Big Tujunga Canyon Road, said the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Margaret Stewart.

The fire was difficult for hand crews to reach, so helicopters made water drops while firefighters on the ground pulled hoses to the area, Stewart said. There was little to no wind but the brush was heavy.

By 11:40 p.m., Los Angeles County firefighters assisting the effort were released and no additional resources were expected to be required to help, she said.

By 12:10 a.m. Monday, some LAFD firefighters were released leaving the scaled-down crew to finish putting out the brush fire in the hours ahead, Stewart said.

No structures were threatened and no evacuations were ordered, she said. No injuries were reported.
