A brush fire broke out Monday in Montebello near the Whittier Narrows Dam at 12:37 a.m., said a dispatcher with Verdugo Fire Dispatch.

It soon charred around 7 acres of heavy brush inside the Rio Hondo riverbed, near Lincoln Avenue and San Gabriel Boulevard, a news photographer reported from the scene.

A helicopter made water drops on the blaze throughout the night and crews from Montebello, Monterey Park, Downey and Los Angeles County worked to clear a line of vegetation around the flames. No structures were threatened and no evacuations were ordered, the dispatcher said

No injuries were reported.
