A brush fire started burning in Burbank, California near Hollywood Hills, now called the Barham Fire. The smoke is spreading rapidly and catching a lot of attention. Here are the latest details on the fire, including a map of its general location, live stream videos, and more.
Barham Fire’s Location & Details
The fire in Burbank started on November 9, 2019, near Warner Bros. Studios. It has been named the Barham Fire. As of LAFD’s latest update, the fire is 25 acres in size.
LAFD noted: “Wind still not a factor, and there have been no injuries. There are no structures damaged or imminently threatened. While there are no formal evacuation orders, a handful of persons living closest to the fire, and being affected by smoke only, were directly contacted and encouraged to shelter in place at their residence.”
ABC 7 reported that this is a brush fire in the Hollywood Hills vicinity and was 3 acres in size as of about 2:15 p.m. It’s now 25 acres. It’s near the 3600 block of Barham Blvd. That’s about a mile or so away from Warner Bros. Studios. Note that the fire is said to be burning on the hillside.

That’s about a mile or so away from Warner Bros. Studios, depending on exactly where the fire started.
There’s also concern about the Wisdom Tree, which is very close to where the fire started, according to social media reports.
Around 2:40 p.m., LAFD had said there were no injuries, structures threatened, or evacuations ordered. (LAFD retweeted the tweet below.) It’s near a number of popular spots, but there are natural barriers between the fire and locations like Universal and Warner Bros. Spread is slow because of no winds, reported the LA Times in the tweet below.
