A brush fireplace burned virtually 5 acres within the Arroyo Seco space of Highland Park earlier than firefighters contained the blaze Friday night time.
The fireplace began in medium to heavy brush close to 368 S. Ave. 60, the Los Angeles Hearth Division stated in an alert shortly earlier than 10 p.m.
Movies posted to Twitter by motorists confirmed flames and billowing smoke approaching the 110 Freeway. Horse stables had been close by, one person stated.
Almost 100 LAFD firefighters battled the blaze, reaching containment in about an hour and quarter-hour, based on the Hearth Division. TV information footage confirmed a lot of the flames extinguished shortly after 11 p.m.
Firefighters will proceed to bolster containment strains and put out any sizzling spots or smoldering particles, the LAFD stated. No accidents had been reported.
Gold Line service between Highland Park and South Pasadena was shut down and changed with shuttle buses as a result of the fireplace was burning near the tracks, the L.A. County Metropolitan Transportation Authority stated.
The reason for the fireplace is below investigation.
