Social Distancing Reduces Traffic At Brentwood Farmer's Market
Mayor Garcetti talks with Mike Bonin and first responders during Dec 2017 fire.
Cause of Fire
Sent Date: 10/29/19
LAFD has released results of Arson Investigation. The fire was caused by a broken branch, which hit an active power line, which then caused a spark that ignited the fire. Experts involved believe this was not an avoidable event as the area has been in excellent compliance with brush clearance.
For those who have chosen to shelter in place and defy the evacuation order, please be advised winds will be above 75MPH at times and the "brush index risk" is 301 (vs high in 2018 of 255 when many intense wildfires occurred). PLEASE ERR ON THE SIDE OF SAFETY over convenience.
For those who are looking to help and support and are stopping by Station 19 to offer sandwiches and pizzas and desserts, the Captain sends his appreciation. PLEASE though do not block Sunset Blvd or the exit path of the emergency vehicles. Station 19 manpower and vehicles will mostly be staying local to address any neighborhood issues.
