Over 60 LAFD crews put out a brush fire that broke out in the hills above Brentwood Sunday night.
According to the LAFD, the fire started on Sunday around 7:40 p.m. in a remote area near Camp Josepho in the hills around Casale Road. The camp was unoccupied, according to the LAFD.
Firefighters arrived to find a 600′ x 600′ area of slow-moving fire at the base of the ridgeline.
61 firefighters achieved knockdown in one hour and 19 minutes, the LAFD says, with numerous air water drops stopping all forward progress of the fire, holding it to just under 1/4 acre.
According to the LAFD, the difficult terrain and remote location required firefighters to hike in with equipment to cut a line and mop up remaining smoldering hot spots.
