Video: Saturday's Fire by the Gold Line Bridge

We thought the video was pretty cool. You might, too.

While trolling YouTube, we came across a video of Saturday's fire near the Gold Line Bridge construction site.

In case you don't recall, a vegetation fire sparked by a downed power line burned through brush lining the eastbound side of the 210 Freeway between the Santa Anita and Baldwin Avenue exits. The flames caused some damage to the Gold Line Bridge construction site, and prompted the California Highway Patrol to issue a Sig Alert.

The video, posted yesterday by YouTube user William Avellan, was shot from a moving vehicle headed east on the 210. As the vehicle approaches the Santa Anita Avenue exit, you can see heavy black smoke rise up from behind the partially-constructed bridge.

There is also a great close-up shot of the burning brush. Check it out for yourself!

For clarification, the fire was not underneath the Gold Line bridge and was not related to the project. The fire started in the residential neighborhood just south of the freeway, and a spark caught fire adjacent to the freeway. The Arcadia Fire Department and County of Los Angeles Fire were quick to respond and took out the fire before any homes or the bridge were impacted.

One additional comment. There was no damage to the bridge from the fire.

Hi Lisa! The PD told us the fire damaged the construction site. So sorry for the misinformation! And glad to hear nothing was damaged.

Oh come on So Cal conservatives... this isn't high speed rail... you don't have to burn it down.
