Update Brush Fire 07/30/2020 INC#0622

Update Brush Fire; INC#0622; 1:15PM; 2546 N Laurel Canyon Bl; https://bit.ly/39GoAPX; Hollywood Hills West; The fire is currently at approximately three acres, burning medium brush in challenging terrain with light wind. Firefighters have anchored the heel (downhill/downwind back side) of the fire and established hose lines up the flanks, providing an attack on the fire from the rear and sides. LAFD helicopters continue to attack the head of the fire with water drops, slowing its ascent toward the ridge. Firefighters have posted up at nearby homes and do not expect the structures to sustain any damage due to the fire. Brush clearance has provided defensible space for firefighters to work in and effectively protect the property. RESIDENTS: Power will be out temporarily in the Laurel Canyon area due to the brush fire. The power company is aware of it and will work to restore power as soon as it is safe (no need to call and notify them); FS 97; Batt 14; Valley Bureau; Council District 4; BC5 BC9 CE83 CM22 CM42 CM52 CW3A CW3B E102 E108 E227 E235 E27 E29 E290 E41 E52 E61 E82 E86 E89 E97 E99 EM9 H1 H3 H4 H6 HA1 HA3 HA4 HA6 RA41 RA97 T27 T90; CH5; 12; -Nicholas Prange
