Fire in Palisades

There was a brush fire in Pacific Palisades this afternoon, in the Palisades Highlands where hundred of homes and condominiums are built in winding cul-de-sacs in the middle of the wild coastal chaparral.

Palisades Highlands is just on the other side of the mountain that rises up behind our neighborhood. When we hike the fire road there, we can look down to the east and see the neighborhood where today's fire burned.

The fire broke out at 12:30 pm and by 4:47 pm, the Fire Department announced it was fully contained, with crews staying on to monitor hot spots or flare-ups.

Just another reason to be alert, and be grateful to our LA County, LA City, and other local regional Firefighters.

I've been worried about you and my other California friends. Stay safe!
