Firefighters knock down small fire at El Dorado Nature Center

The Long Beach Fire Department extinguished a brush fire at the El Dorado Nature Center Friday afternoon, according to LBFD spokesman Brian Fisk.

Fisk said the department responded to the blaze at 1:13 p.m. just west of the San Gabriel River bike path between Willow and Spring streets. The fire burned about 200 square feet of vegetation, said Fisk.

Arson investigators were called afterward to investigate the cause of the fire, Fisk said.
