Firefighters have been battling a wildfire that broke out in the Hollywood Hills area of Los Angeles on Monday night.
The Los Angele Fire Department issued an alert late on Monday night on its Twitter page and shared a link to a map where the fire was being contained.
The Coyote Fire was first reported at around 9.30 p.m. in the 3600 block of N Barham Boulevard, above a dog park near the Ava Apartment complex.
According to LAFD public information officer Brian Humphrey, there were at least 80 firefighters on the scene within 30 minutes. By the end of the fire, 100 LAFD personnel were deployed. The department also sent three helicopters to help battle the fire and the Los Angeles County Fire Department deployed to help stop the blaze with camp crews and an additional helicopter.
It took the 100 firefighters 75 minutes to contain the the flames
LAFD said the fire is nearby Ava Apartment Complex but no structures were ever considered to be under threat and no evacuation orders were ever issued.
“At this point and time, there are no structures imminently threatened but the fires in this area have been known to be very stubborn and taken days to put out, ” Humphrey said.
He added that the fire was burning away from the complex and toward Coyote Canyon.
Residents were happy to learn that the blaze was quickly blocked from moving forward.
“I used to hike up there, I’d take the dogs up there. It’s a beautiful place,” said Tatiana Turner, a Hollywood Hills neighbor. “I hope it’s safe, and I’m pretty sure it will be.”
“They’re awesome. They rolled in really quick,” she continued, noting the speedy response by LAFD crews.
The cause of the fire is still unclear.
“The cause will come soon, right now we need to put this fire down,” Humphrey said at the time.
