Eagle Rock Brush Fire Causes Little Damage

By City News Service

A fire scorched several acres of brush north of the Ventura (134) Freeway in Eagle Rock on Monday.

The blaze was reported near Figueroa Street about 11 a.m., said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department. Firefighters appeared to have gained the upper hand on the flames within an hour.

No structures were damaged, and no one was hurt. Humphrey said.

Three westbound freeway lanes were closed while crews worked to clear the scene, according to the California Highway Patrol.
