There are no homes or businesses on this stretch of Grizzly Peak; only people driving by and the occasional cyclist.
One woman who lives nearby and who didn't want to give her name was saddened by the news, but not shocked.
"It's a neighborhood that's pretty wealthy," she said. "People might think they're immune but there are these people who meet up on the weekends on these hillsides who have shot off guns before and firecrackers that start fires."
