LOS ANGELES (AP) - Investigators are trying to determine the cause of brush fires in the city's largest park that burned about 50 acres and left one firefighter injured.
No flames were visible Sunday, but several dozen firefighters were patrolling the scorched Griffith Park area to snuff out lingering embers and watch for flare-ups.
No structures were damaged. One firefighter was injured when he
was hit in the face by a hose.
It was the fourth time firefighters have tackled flames in the 4,200-acre urban park in the past month. In May 2007, a fierce wildfire roared through hundreds of acres in the park and forced evacuations in adjacent neighborhoods.
