Growing Brush Fire Rages In Brentwood

  • The fire burned not far from from homes in Black Canyon City

However, by 1:30 p.m. PT, a media advisory had been issued, upgrading the fire to a "major emergency response with over 115 LAFD firefighters on scene".

Mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders are in effect, and Yavapai County Sheriff's deputies say there are no new evacuations expected as fire crews work to get control.

More than 150 firefighters battled a 30-acre brush fire on a Los Angeles hillside on Sunday that investigators said was sparked by a weed whacker.

Just after 11PM last night, a fire broke out in the "C and S" auto salvage yard on Smitty Way at Tara Springs Road in Black Canyon City.


Many Hollywood players have made Mandeville Canyon their home including Lachlan Murdoch, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ari Emanuel and Dr. Dre who bought Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's 4-acre property (part of Brentwood Country Estates) for $40 million. A dark plume of smoke was visible for miles as the fire consumed moderate to thick brush near Mandeville Canyon Road, a dead end road that snakes up a deep canyon lined by expensive view homes.

Conditions for brush fires have been developing due to hot and dry weather across Southern California.

"Residents in the vicinity have been evacuated as a precaution", D'Evelyn said, adding the number of evacuations is unknown. Margaret Stewart an LAFD spokeswoman said the fire is in "very hard terrain, so it takes time".
