Brush Fire | Paseo Miramar
Los Angeles Fire Department air and ground operations responded to a less-than-one-quarter-acre brush fire near 300 N Paseo Miramar on Sunday evening, February 28, reported LAFD spokesperson Brian Humphrey.
The fire, reported at 10:37 p.m., was knocked down by 11 p.m.
“First arriving LAFD ground units handled less than one-quarter acre of brush in steep terrain,” Humphrey reported.
There were no injuries, no structure threat and no damage reported, as well as no evacuations prompted. The wind was calm in the area at the time.
“Though the incident occurred in the vicinity of an apparently downed or arcing power line or transformer—and there [was] a power outage reported in the vicinity,” Humphrey explained, “the specific cause of the fire remains under investigation.”
