A brush fire has burned more than 40 acres up a hill in Pacific Palisades, with flames licking the backyards of some of the multimillion-dollar homes in the tony L.A. neighborhood triggering evacuations in the area. The fire was reported at 10.39am on Monday October 21.
The Los Angeles Fire Department ordered mandatory evacuations impacting about 200 homes near the now-named Palisades Fire. The evacuations are for residents in the area bordered by Charmel Lane on the west, Bienveneda Avenue on the east, the end of Lachman Lane on the north, and Merivale Lane on the South. An evacuation center has been set up at the Pacific Palisades Recreation Center.
