Update Brush Fire 09/01/2017

Update Brush Fire; 11:20PM; 10850 W La Tuna Canyon Rd; internal:/; Sun Valley; We understand the concern of many residents seeing visible flames from #LaTunaFire. Due to erratic fire behavior, driven by strong, gusting winds, we are not able to give a firm prediction on all areas potentially at risk. We do have MANDATORY evacuation orders for the following streets in the Brace Canyon Park area of Burbank (Haven Wy frm Joaquin to the top. Olney Pl, Ramey Pl., Mystic View, View Crest) Please follow @burbankpd for the latest on those areas. Approximately 50 homes threatened in that area and the fire will likely reach the defensive lines at those homes in 30 mins. The current evacuation center is at Sunland Recreation Center (8651 Foothill Blvd, Sunland-Tujunga, CA 91040) but the Red Cross is now sending volunteers to open an additional evacuation center in Burbank at McCambridge Park (1515 North Glenoaks Boulevard, Burbank CA 91504). The LaTunaFire is burning in 4 different directions to include down over the hills towards Burbank as well as north through the canyons above the 210 freeway (Map being posted to twitter @lafd momentarily). We emphasis that anyone feeling unsafe in their homes, despite existence of an evacuation order, should not delay leaving. You can call 911 to report your home under threat of the fire and you should then safely evacuate, do not wait until it is too late. Please continue to follow @LAFD (twitter) for breaking news and all updates will post to our website www.lafd.org/alerts where you can sign up to receive them directly.; FS 77; Batt 12; Valley Bureau; Council District 7; Margaret Stewart
