Crews Contain Brush Fire In South Pasadena

SOUTH PASADENA (CBS) — Fire crews have managed to contain a blaze that ignited in South Pasadena Sunday night.

Fire officials said they would continue to watch for potential flare-ups.

The brush fire was reported shortly before 9 p.m. in the backyard of a home on the 800 block of Bank Street.

The fire started burning uphill, threatening several structures, before crews contained the blaze a half-hour later.

As the flames moved uphill toward a house, the homeowner got his yard hose and battled the flames alongside firefighters.

Some fire crews remained on scene in case the blaze flares up again.
