PACIFIC PALISADES—On Tuesday, November 10, there was a brush fire reported in the city of Pacific Palisades.
The fire was reported around 11:46 a.m. at 15500 Via De Las Osas. Five dozen firefighters were summoned to the fire and three helicopters. The blaze took roughly a hour to be extinguished.
Residents in the area did not need to evacuate there homes as there was no immediate danger to their residences. There were no structures that were reportedly harmed due to the fire or any reported injuries from the flames.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation by officials.
This fire comes only two days after another brush fire that occurred earlier on Sunday, November 8. The fire started around 3 a.m. and residents were jolted out of bed by the sound of helicopters flying above trying to extinguish the flames.
The brush fire burned about 2.5 acres of land and took the firefighters around a little over 3 hours to extinguish. The fire slowed down traffic on the northbound side of the Pacific Coast Highway.
It is believed that the second fire was caused by a group of homeless people, who were setting the garbage on fire in order to stay warm. The fire apparently got out of hand due to the wind and proceeded to burn through the area.
