Los Angeles County Fire Department firefighters rushed to a location in the 2100 block of North Kinneloa Canyon Road in East Pasadena Thursday to respond to a brush fire over a one-acre portion of the area.
The blaze was the first of the “fire season” and comes as the Southland enters its first summer heatwave.
Marvin Lim, a spokesman with the LA County Fire Department, said they received a call about the fire at about 10:18 a.m. and immediately dispatched firefighters to the scene.
The firefighters, assisted by a County fire helicopter which dropped water on the fire, were able to stop the spread of the fire at about 10:55 a.m. and full containment was declared at 11:07 a.m.
“They had a copter arrive on scene making water drops, and we had camp crews on the ground that were putting a line around the fire to contain it,” Lim said.
No one was injured during the fire, and no structures were affected, Lim said.
He added the cause of the fire was still being investigated.
