The Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank, near Los Angeles, was evacuated today.

The Barham fire has burned 34 acres in the Hollywood Hills.

As of Sunday morning, the fire remains active and 25 percent contained.

According to the LA Fire Department, there have been no civilian injuries but one male firefighter sustained a non-life threatening injury to his arm and was taken to a hospital in the area.

The Warner lot was evacuated around 4 p.m. PT in a “precautionary measure,” a WB representative said.



The “forward progress of the fire has been stopped” and “ground and air crews will continue to battle the perimeter of the still active wildfire, for which the containment goal remains within a ‘box’ west of Forest Lawn Cemetery, east of Coyote Canyon Drive, south of Forest Lawn Drive and north of Wonder View Drive,” according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.



Photos and video posted on Twitter by Burbank police and other users in the area showed thick, white smoke drifting from the hills, but no visible flames.



Composer Christopher Drake tweeted about the lot’s evacuations, writing “Had to evac my studio at Warner Bros for the first time ever due to smoke from the #Barhamfire right behind the studio lot. WB is on total lockdown at the moment.”

However, the flames were clearly visible in video later posted by CBS Los Angeles.

The Barham Fire comes during a busy fire season for Southern California.

On Nov. 1, simultaneous fires in North Hollywood and Atwater Village sent heavy clouds of acrid smoke over much of central Los Angeles, especially in Hollywood, Koreatown, Silverlake and Los Feliz.

And in October, the Saddlebridge, Getty and Tick fires burned thousands of acres in the Los Angeles area.
