Just went out to grab a tomato for my sandwich and smelled smoke in the air. A hillside along Huntington Dr. South near where it turns in to Soto St. is on fire. There doesn’t seem to be any houses threatened and the ground fire crews were out in full force, along with 4 helicopters doing water drops. The helicopter crew was also dropping water to protect the surrounding structures.
Gangbanging shoot out? Check back after 10pm.
It’s been an interesting day in El Sereno.
