A half-acre brushfire burned near near Fryman Canyon homes in Studio City Saturday afternoon.
The fire was reported about 3:30 p.m. in the 3100 block of North Coldwater Canyon Avenue near Mulholland Drive, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Nicholas Prange.
The flames were burning in medium brush pushed by winds of 8-10 miles per hour, Prange said.
“There are homes in the vicinity,” he said. ” Fire crews have been assigned to protect the nearby homes.”
Helicopters from the Los Angeles Fire Department and Los Angeles County Fire Department were making water drops to slow the spread of the fire, Prange said. “Ground crews will ultimately finalize extinguishment after overcoming access challenges.”
