1-Acre Brush Fire Damages Home In Fullerton, Temporarily Forces Evacuations – CBS Los Angeles

26October 2020


FULLERTON (CBSLA) — Crews quickly contained a one-acre brush fire Monday that damaged one home and temporarily forced evacuations.

The blaze broke out around noon at Flintridge and Las Palmas, Fullerton-Brea Deputy Fire Chief Chris Nigg said. The blaze was knocked down by 1 p.m.

Heavy vegetation and high winds fueled the fire, temporarily forcing evacuations in the area. By 1:56 p.m., those evacuated were allowed to return to their homes.

According to Nigg, power lines likely knocked down by high winds were presumed to have sparked the blaze.

The one home sustained damage to the roof, but no one was injured, he said.
