Didn’t get as close as I would have otherwise (the kids were in the car) but with winds at 5-10mph and the air temp only around 90, this doesn’t look near as sketchy as last year’s Griffith Park fire.
Not yet, anyway. LAFD’s Twitter feed had it at 1/4 acre in light brush off of Hobart in Griffith Park, about 21 minutes ago.
Update: CBS 2 is reporting the fire had trees going up earlier on, but it’s laying down and smoldering at the moment. You may return to your work.
Until the next one starts up, of course.
The 5:55 p.m. update update: LAFD has it at 3 acres total, with 50 senior citizens in brief holding pattern but all’s well now.
Final update: LAFD says knockdown was declared at 6:29 p.m.
