  1. Thank you to Firefighters.

  2. On Saturday evening there was a fire on the hill behind the Glassellland sign (not the hill immediately behind it, but the one above the houses that are right behind the sign). Produced a fair amount of smoke, but the LAFD put it out quickly. Caused by a kid lighting a firework.
