Firefighters put out 2 rekindled fires in Griffith Park

Los Angeles city firefighters quickly extinguished two small hotspots that were left over from Monday's brush fire near the zoo in Griffith Park.

One of the hotspots was reported shortly after 9 a.m. and the other at 2:31 p.m. in roughly the same area of Monday's blaze off West Zoo Drive, says Devin Gales of the city fire department.

"They were in light grass,'' Gales says. "They were rekindling of the fire that occurred Monday. This sometimes happens in an area that hasn't burned in a while.''

In both cases, several firefighters were called but then quickly released when it was realized they were not full-scale blazes, he says.
