Brush fire burns in remote area of Malibu

At least 150 firefighters were battling a five-acre brush fire Friday morning in a remote area of Malibu, off Tuna Canyon Road.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department reported that the blaze “has presented access challenges,” with firefighters having to hike approximately 2,000 feet via a narrow trail and in steep, rugged terrain, to get to the burning area.

The fire was also being battled by air with three water-dropping helicopters, the department said.

The department said the location of the blaze was about one mile up Tuna Canyon Road from the Pacific Coast Highway, on the east side of the road.
