Crews held to less than nine acres a brush fire that burned Saturday in the hills above Calabasas.

Officials deployed air support to the 8.7-acre blaze, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Aircraft eventually made several retardant drops on the blaze, which was 75% contained as of Saturday evening, the city of Calabasas reported.

The fire agency’s Air Operations Section at 1:52 p.m. tweeted a notice that recreational drones near wildfires are not safe, but it wasn’t immediately known if a drone had interfered with the fight against the Calabasas fire.

The fire broke out near the 24000 block of Calabasas Road, near Parkway Calabasas, before 1 p.m.

Lovi’s Delicatessen manager Mike Siah said a high volume of smoke was visible from the Calabasas Road restaurant.

“We were concerned because it was so smoky,” Siah said. “You couldn’t even take a breath.”

Forward progress on the blaze, dubbed the Lobo fire, was stopped by mid-afternoon, the fire department confirmed. No homes were threatened and no injuries were reported from the incident, the department added.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation.
