Fire photographer Rick McClure shared some photos of firefighters working to control a brush fire last week in the Sylmar section that threatened buildings.

At 7:47 p.m. on January 19, 2021, the City of Los Angeles (CA) Fire Department (LAFD) responded to a reported brush fire. Firefighters located a fire centered around a nursery/equestrian area with 25 mph winds carrying the ember cast across the freeway towards a residential area.

Just over two hours later, LAFD firefighters stopped all forward progress, successfully protecting the apartment/condos from damage.
