Los Angeles County Firefighters joined the Beverly Hills Fire Department to extinguish a brush fire this morning before any structures were threatened or damaged on the border between the two cities.
A brush fire broke out at 11:40 Monday morning on the 1700 block of West Monte Cielo Ct. off Lago Vista Dr. and Coldwater Cyn. Dr.
Both fire departments responded. The lack of wind was a factor in keeping the fire from spreading in the dry, hot air.
Beverly Hills Police temporarily closed Coldwater Cyn. from Heather Dr. the Beverly/ Rexford so that firefighters could have unrestrained access to the brush fire.
BHPD announced that the street was reopened at 1:21 p.m.
Two acres were burned in the fire.
