Another day, another fire in Elysian Park. Firefighters this afternoon knocked down a fire that consumed nearly an acre of grass in the eastern section of the park near Broadway.
Today’s fire comes after two small blazes hit the park on Thursday and one week after a larger fire burned about five acres on a steep hill over the 5 Freeway.
All the fires have been relatively minor but they have broken out as dry brush has yet to be cleared away from many sections of the sprawling park, and countless dead and dying trees litter the landscape.
