PACIFIC PALISADES—A fire burned an acre of brush on Thursday, October 27, along a hillside on the 15100 block of the Pacific Coast Highway. Construction crews were working on building a home in the area at the time of the blaze. The fire was sparked by a construction worker cutting a pipe with a torch. The fire started to spread near Potrero Canyon and required the use of water-dropping helicopters to put it out before reaching other homes within the area, according to Brian Humphrey, a Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman.


There were about 60 firefighters and several other helicopters crews from other stations that helped put out the fire. Among the crews were Station 19 from Brentwood, Station 25 in Pacific Palisades (Los Liones), Pacific Palisades (Sunset) and Station 37 of Westwood. The fire was reported to have been put out within the hour. Sparks that started the fire came from a construction site near PCH a half mile north of Temescal Canyon Road, according to Erik Scott, an LAFD spokesperson.

There was no need to evacuate homes in the neighborhood.

“The fire department is reminding people to have a fire extinguisher and cell phone nearby to call 911 if they are working outside on a project that could cause sparks or flame and ignite a fire,” noted Humphrey.
