Update Brush Fire; 05:07PM; 2969 N Mandeville Canyon Rd; internal:/; Brentwood; #MandevilleFire #Brentwood This remains an active fire with LAFD anticipating operations for at least the next 36hrs. Cause of the fire was accidental, related to weed abatement for proper brush clearance. It serves as a reminder for residents to follow three key tips for brush clearance: 1) Avoid performing brush clearance during peak heat hours 2) If possible, avoid the use of metal bladed equipment which can cause sparks (ie when they hit a rock) 3) Keep a fire extinguisher, garden hose, etc immediately available so if a spark does create flames, you can quickly extinguish it and ensure no spread of fire. Mandeville Canyon Road is CLOSED at Sunset Bl and we do not have a timeline on the re-opening of the road due to active emergency operations. Acreage count remains at 30 acres. We do not have a containment % number yet available. No homes are threatened and no evacuations are in place though residents will not be able to drive vehicles past the road closure. ; FS 19; Batt 9; West Bureau; Council District 11; Margaret Stewart
