A BRUSH fire has broken out in the Hollywood Hills, according to reports.

The blaze, which has been named the Coyote Fire, was first reported just after 9:30pm local time on Monday night near an apartment building in LA.


More than 70 firefighters are tackling the blaze as they try to avoid flames catching near homes, ABC7 reports.

So far, the blaze has torched at least one acre.

Fire crews say that no homes are under threat and no evacuations have been ordered.

Four water-dropping choppers are on the scene trying to dampen the flames.

Reporter Malik Earnest said the fire was burning near the Hollywood sign.

Brian Humphrey, the LA Fire Department Public Information Officer, said: "At this point and time, there are no structures imminently threatened but the fires in this area have been known to be very stubborn and taken days to put out."

He revealed that the fire is burning toward the Coyote Canyon.

It’s not known what caused the blaze to break out.
