LOS ANGELES—Fire has destroyed a house and burned brush in the hilly Brentwood area of Los Angeles.

Water-dropping helicopters aided about 95 firefighters in containing the fire, which broke out late Monday morning in the Santa Monica Mountains west of the Getty Center.

Fire Department spokesman Shawn Lenske tells City News Service that the cause of the blaze is under investigation.

The National Weather Service issued Red Flag warnings for fire danger in local mountains, but winds remained light during the fires.
