Hundreds of firefighters from several agencies responded by ground and air over several days to battle a wildfire that began Saturday afternoon in the Hollywood Hills.
The Los Angeles Fire Department was notified by the first of several 9-1-1 calls at 1:52 PM on November 9, 2019 to respond to a brush fire in the vicinity of Barham Boulevard and Coyote Canyon Drive. Firefighters arrived quickly to find three acres of brush burning in remote terrain
Under the command of LAFD Assistant Chief John Drake, a well-coordinate ground and air assault slowed the forward progress of the fire in a matter of hours, preventing the need for formal evacuation of nearby homes, or the highly populated Universal Studios theme park less than a mile away.
Fire crews remained for days after improving containment lines and mopping up hot spots and smoldering debris. Thankfully no structures were threatened by the flames, and no injuries were reported.
The cause of the major emergency blaze, known as the Barham Fire, remains under active investigation.
