Los Angeles Fire Department crews put out a quarter-acre bushfire in Brentwood on Thursday afternoon.
The fire broke out in the 2400 block of North Sepulveda Boulevard around 3:45 p.m., and the LAFD said 30 firefighters were able to put out the blaze in 21 minutes.
However, about half an hour after knocking down the phone, LAFD tweets The helicopter is returning to the scene to assist in the emergency response.
“Continued traffic congestion and delays on SB405 in #SepulvedaPass are expected,” the department added.
In the update, the department clarified that three helicopters and 150 firefighters were at the scene with “several stubborn hot spots formed outside the initial containment line with light to medium volatile brushing” caused by “afterglow” struggle.
Despite the sudden outbreak, no one was injured, no buildings were threatened and no people were evacuated, but traffic was still affected, the department said.
“At least one lane of Southbound Highway 405 near Sepulveda Boulevard and the fire is expected to be closed until Operation LAFD is completed. Motorists should anticipate congestion and delays in the area, consider alternate routes and monitor news broadcasts for traffic coverage,” LAFD said.
