WALNUT (CBSLA.com) — Firefighters made quick work of a brush fire in Walnut that threatened homes.

The so-called Grand fire was reported just before 5 p.m. Friday near La Puente Road and Grand Avenue.

Sky9 was over the scene as firefighters launched an aerial assault on the fire, which was estimated at 1 acre.

Airships also helped in the firefighting effort, dousing the flames as they crept their way up a hillside to the 21000 block of Corral Court.

Homes both to the west of the fire as well as to the south were in the fire’s path for some time.

No further information was available.
