The Flores Canyon in Altadena had a 10-acre brush fire on Sunday. No official word on the cause yet, but the blaze was contained within a few hours. A few hikers did have to be evacuated from the area, which I’d imagine would be pretty nerve wracking.

Let’s hope we get some rain this winter. And be thankful the few blazes we have had have been relatively small.
