According to the Daily News Los Angeles, a neighborhood along Santa Susana Creek through Canoga Park is surrounded by a jungle of 8 foot weeds. Being concerned about their safety, residents called for help. However, despite months of requests to Los Angeles County flood control officials to take down the fire hazard, the brush grows ever taller.
In past years, residents say, the county did a great job in plowing the weeds along the concrete culvert leading into the Los Angeles River. But this June, the corn-like brush was seen growing next to the dry shrubs and tumbleweeds behind the Riviera Mobile Estates.
Worried about potential sparks from Fourth of July celebrations, resident Virginia Arnold, 72, called the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works and the district’s San Fernando field office told her a team of weed-whackers would arrive in early July. But the weeds only grew higher.
“They said they couldn’t (help) us – that they needed to do the Los Angeles River first,” she said. County agencies are responsible for mowing the foliage growing along the channel and it’s the city fire department that polices the weeds that pose a fire danger along Los Angeles’ creeks and rivers.
What concerns residents the most of the Mobile Estates, with 267 homes, is fire. In November 2008, fire swept through the Oakridge Mobile Home Park in Sylmar, destroying 500 homes. “These are elderly people, all over 55, and they’re afraid,” said Betty Gutierrez, who manages the park. “It’s dangerous. Usually, they cut (the weeds) down. Except this year. They haven’t done anything.”
The problem these residents face is concerning because of the recent increases in brush fires. No matter where you live in California, safety comes first, especially with the dangers of fires.
