Two-acre brush fire burning near Getty Center [Updated]

July 8, 2009 |  1:15 pm

A brush fire is burning near the Getty Center in Brentwood.

According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, fire crews are dealing with a 2-acre blaze burning in heavy brush at 1200 Getty Center Drive.

[Updated at 1:17 p.m.: Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott said 55 firefighters are on the scene and that he was not aware of any structures immediately threatened.]

This is the same general area where a large brush fire burned through last year, forcing the closure of the 405 Freeway. That fire brought a huge fire department response, and no structures were damaged.
