On July 26, 2017 at 1551 hours, a full brush response was dispatched to a reported brush fire on Wildwood Canyon Road at the Burbank Police Department Range. While en route, Battalion 1 observed a large column of smoke and requested the balance of a third alarm brush assignment, two water dropping helicopters, and four Type 1 Handcrews. Upon arrival, Battalion 1 reported a three acre brush fire moving uphill at a rapid rate. Through an aggressive air and ground attack, crews were able to keep the fire contained to approximately 20 acres with no damage to structures. A total of 17 Engines, 5 Battalion Chiefs, 8 Handcrews, 4 helicopters, 2 Rescue Ambulances and 2 Water Tenders mitigated the incident. Resources from Area C, Los Angeles County Fire, Los Angeles City Fire and US Forest Service assisted with the response. The Burbank Police Department assisted with traffic control and helped coordinate voluntary evacuations on Country Club Drive. Crews remained on scene throughout the night and continued mop-up operations on July 27. There were no injuries to civilians.
