Firefighters Battle Brushfire in Eagle Rock

By City News Service

 City firefighters swiftly knocked down a small brushfire that charred a quarter-acre of grass along the eastbound Ventura (134) Freeway Saturday, a fire department spokesman said.

The fire – which reportedly closed two lanes of the eastbound 134 as well as a connector roads from the Glendale (2) Freeway – started at about 2:10 p.m. on the south side of the 134, just east of the 2, fire department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.

“It was knocked down in less than 10 minutes by the first crew that arrived on scene,” Humphrey said.

The California Highway Patrol opened the lanes on the 134-freeway after a temporary shut down of the connector road between the two freeways around 5:10 p.m. to mop up the area scorched by the fire.

No structures were threatened and no injuries were reported, according to Humphrey.
