A brush fire burned one acre in the Sepulveda Basin in Van Nuys Saturday.
It was reported at 2:25 p.m. at 15700 W. Burbank Blvd., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Margaret Stewart. At that time, the fire had consumed half an acre with no wind and no structures threatened.
Stewart warned that smoke might hamper visibility on the San Diego (405) Freeway.
At 4:03 p.m., she reported that while knockdown had not yet been declared, the fire was contained and crews were working to put out hot spots. “This is an extended duration operation due to the accessibility of the area,” she said.
No injuries were reported.
