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."
Be sure to turn on the volume for this one (mobile viewers should turn their phones sideways so the video player loads fully).

Designers that are completely out of touch with surf and skateboard culture, show off their guady "surf and skate inspired" clothing designs.



From Loic Prigent:

"Kim Jones is working with emerging brand ERL for his Spring 2023 DIOR collection! We decipher all the references to surfing and skateboarding (skateboarding was born nearby in Santa Monica). We have fun annoying almost all the guests with our absurd questions. The show is a variation on blue, HAute Couture, the Belle Epoque, skateboarding, the wave, all together. Oh and Christina Aguilera was here! The young couple Brooklyn and Nicola Beckham pelz too! They were on their honeymoon and barely restrained themselves from french kissing in front of the camera! "

" Los Angeles County Firefighters retrieve a Public Works bulldozer that was stuck in the Santa Monica Beach shoreline on Saturday, June 4, 2022.

According to Los Angeles County Public Works Spokesman Kerjon Lee, Los Angeles County Public Works was performing seasonal maintenance at the outlet of Pico drain on Santa Monica Beach on June 3, when a small dozer became stuck at the shoreline. A second, larger dozer was brought in to assist and, while the initial piece of equipment was freed, the second dozer was caught in the rising tide and remained in the shoreline overnight.

Early this morning, LA County crews returned during low tide with an excavator to clear sand in front of the dozer. Two additional dozers and winches were brought in and the dozer was dislodged and safely removed by 9 AM."
