Evacuations Lifted in Glendale Fire

Two other large fires were burning in Southern California as dry, windy conditions persisted.

More than a dozen homes were evacuated as a small fire erupted in Glendale Tuesday amid dangerous fire weather conditions, but by 4 p.m., crews were working to mop up the blaze.

The brush fire started near Brand Park on Mountain Street, the Glendale Fire Department said.

It was said to be about 8 acres by 3 p.m.

Power was shut off at the 900-1000 block of W. Mountain Street as a safety precaution, according to the fire department.

Fourteen homes along Idlewood Road and W. Mountain Street were evacuated as a precaution.

The fire began burning as the Blue Ridge Fire and Silverado Fire burned thousands of acres. The Blue Ridge Fire burned 15,200 acres and 0% contained, while the Silverado Fire burned 12,600 acres and 5% contained Tuesday afternoon.

The Blue Ridge Fire grew overnight in the Yorba Linda and Chino Hills area. Christine Kim reports for Today in LA on Tuesday Oct. 27, 2020.
