A brush fire in the Hollywood Hills was contained at about 1 acre in size, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The Coyote Fire, which burned in the 3600 block of Barham Boulevard, was reported shortly after 9:30 p.m., the LAFD said in an alert.
Despite its proximity to the Ava Apartment complex, there was “no imminent structure threat,” the LAFD added in another alert.
The LAFD sent 100 firefighters, including three aerial units, fighting the flames in medium-to-heavy brush, and the Los Angeles County Fire Department offered aid as well, the Fire Department said.
“No injuries have been reported. No structures damaged. No formal evacuation. This fire was entirely within the City of Los Angeles, and did NOT threaten the AVA Apartments, Universal City / Universal Studios, the distant Hollywood sign on Mt. Lee, Forest Lawn Cemetery or the neighboring City of Burbank,” the department added.
The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
