Irwin was on the scene when this palm tree on Rose caught fire a little while ago, apparently the result of illegal fireworks. Irwin and another neighbor were able to keep the flames from spreading, with a hose and a couple of fire extinguishers until the fire department arrived and doused it. No reports of damage other than to the tree, but an excellent reminder of what can happen as a result of amateur (and illegal in Los Angeles) pyrotechnics.
