The Chevy Tahoe, that is said to be the cause of the brush fire in the Bollona Wetlands, had been parked there for over one week, according to several people who had drove by it regularly.

Over 3 acres were scorched by the fire, a pissed off resident made a video of the aftermath:

A pissed off resident made a video of the aftermath of brush fire in the Bollona Wetlands, that scorched over 3 acres.

On Saturday at approximately 5:34PM, a brush fire broke out in the Ballona Creek Wetlands.

According to Brian Humphrey of the LAFD: "LAFD ground and air response with nearby LACoFD in Automatic Aid, to one-quarter (0.25) acre light grass burning in the Ballona Creek Wetlands." Where Culver and Jefferson Bluvds meet is where the fire was burning.

A video (posted below) shows that it was most likely caused by a Chevrolet SUV that caught fire.

Whether that SUV being driving or being used as a home is not yet known.

The fire, known as the "Jefferson Fire", grew rapidly from 0.25 acre to 3.5 acres.

At 6:10PM, Humprey updated the fire's status that "The 86 LAFD responders assigned by ground and air (Joined by nearby LACoFD and Culver City FD ground crews in Automatic Aid) are making significant progress on the blaze." The fire was being held at "Major Emergency" status. No injuries and no structures were threaten. Closures of one or more lanes of Culver Boulevard and Jefferson Boulevard west of Lincoln Boulevard woukld continue until LAFD operations are completed.

By 6:30PM, the updated was that the LAFD had "fully contained the perimeter of the blaze at three and one-half (3.5) acres of vegetation in less than one hour. No injury. No structures damaged."

Humprey updated the possible cause, "Though the genesis of the fire appears related to a full-sized sport utility vehicle that was well involved with fire, with flame fanned by light on-shore wind already spread into nearby volatile vegetation on LAFD arrival, the specific and official cause of the fire has yet to be determined."

Hop aboard the Marina del Rey WaterBus - a scenic way to get around the Marina! The WaterBus operates from 6/17 through 9/5 (Friday-Sunday) for $1 per person, one-way. Stops include Chace Park, Fisherman’s Village, “Mother’s” Beach & more.
