Firefighters put out a small brush fire that ignited near homes in Brentwood Tuesday evening.

Crews responded around 5:20 p.m. to the 1000 block of Kenter Avenue, where residents were recently forced to evacuate due to the Getty Fire, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Around 6 p.m., LAFD spokesperson Margaret Stewart said one engine was handling a spot fire that measured about 20 square feet.

When Sky5 was initially above the blaze around 6:10 p.m., barely any flames could be seen. But a short time later, something caused the fire to spark and spread.

The aerial video showed the flames sizzling near power lines, flashing quickly between different colors.

Firefighters were able to control the blaze by about 7 p.m.

Stewart said because the fire was so small, it’s cause would not be investigated.
