Glendale brush fire briefly prompts evacuation

Several homes were briefly evacuated Sunday when a brush fire that started in a nearby neighborhood charred a roughly two-acre hillside near Forest Lawn in Glendale, officials said.

The fire broke out about 11:30 a.m. in the Adams Hills neighborhood southeast of Forest Lawn, said Brandy Villanueva of the Glendale Fire Department. The blaze was knocked down by 1:10 p.m.

No injuries were reported. The cause is still under investigation, she said.

"During the fire fight we did evacuate 10 homes, but those evacuation orders have been lifted," she said.
