    On Sunday, April 07, 2002 at 1504 Hours (3:04 PM PDT), nine Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, three LAFD Helicopters, two LAFD Brush Patrols, one LAFD Rescue Ambulance and one LAFD Battalion Officer Command Team, as well as three Camp Crews, one Crew Supervisor and one Battalion Chief Officer from the Los Angeles County Fire Department, all under the direction of LAFD’s 5th Battalion Commander John Miller, responded to a Greater Alarm Brush Fire just east of the Observatory in Griffith Park. The first Company to arrive on scene reported one-eighth of an acre of grass and light brush burning in rugged terrain. Firefighters using handlines and hand tools made there way judiciously across steep and rugged terrain to anchor the flames as the LAFD Helicopters commenced a well orchestrated aerial assault the flanks of the fire, which ultimately came within 50 feet of the Griffith Park Observatory. Thanks to diligent efforts by Firefighters on the ground and in the air, the 67 year-old Southern California landmark – undergoing a multimillion dollar renovation - was spared damage. The fire was confined to two acres of vegetation and extinguished in just 82 minutes. There were no injuries. The cause of the fire is categorized as “suspicious”.
