Small Brush Fire Burning In Newport Beach

NEWPORT BEACH (CBSLA.com) — A small brush fire was reported in Newport Beach on Wednesday evening.

The blaze was reported around 4 p.m. near Bristol Avenue and Jamboree Road, near a Fletcher Jones Motorcars.

Several water-dropping helicopters helped in the firefighting effort.
