(FOX 11/CNS) - Firefighters from the city and county of Los Angeles knocked down a brush fire in Granada Hills on Saturday that burned about one acre, destroyed two vehicles and damaged three homes
The blaze broke out near 16650 W. Knollwood Dr. about 3:20 p.m., fire department spokeswoman Amy Bastman said.
The fire threatened some structures along a nearby golf course. More than 100 firefighters worked to extinguish the flames, stopping the fire from engulfing three nearby homes that sustained mild damage to the exterior and roof.
Two vehicles were destroyed, Bastman said.
