A small fire has broken out in the Hollywood Hills, but it appears not to be threatening any homes.

The fire was burning on Forest Knoll Drive, west of Laurel Canyon Boulevard and north of Sunset Boulevard.

TV news footage showed residents using their garden hoses to fight the fire. As of 6 p.m., no flames were visible, and it's unclear when firefighters will contain the blaze.

Officials had warned that winds today could heighten fire danger.
