Update Brush Fire #BarhamFire; INC#0845; 9:30AM; 3694 N Barham Bl; http://bit.ly/32yNGv0; Hollywood Hills; Air and ground crews worked throughout the night to stop all forward progress of the fire, keeping it within the control area - a strategically planned "box" on the map. Figures remain at 34 acres and 15% containment, and will be updated as a more accurate survey of the burn footprint is acquired. Smoke seen in the area is originating from smoldering objects inside of the containment area and is currently not a threat. Crews will be working throughout the day today, tomorrow, and possibly longer. The terrain is very steep and the mop up will be a slow methodical process to eliminate hot spots and smoldering debris. Water drops by air will continue to aid in completing this objective. No additional injuries have been reported (yesterday, one firefighter sustained non-life threatening injuries while working on the fire). The cause remains under active investigation. ROAD CLOSURES: Forest Lawn Dr remains closed between Barham and the Ventura Freeway. EVACUATIONS: There have been no formal evacuations. Any residents or employees who left the area did so voluntarily, by no order of the Fire Department. No structures damaged or threatened. No civilian injuries; FS 76; Batt 5; West Bureau; Council District 4; -Nicholas Prange
