A fast-moving vegetation fire broke out today behind a baseball field at the El Sereno Recreation Center, scorching more than three
acres before fire crews knocked it down about 40 minutes later.

Crews responded just after 4pm to reports of a vegetation fire, about an acre large, at 4721 Klamath St., according to Brian Humphrey of the Los
Angeles Fire Department.

The fire, driven by the dry terrain and light wind, burned about three and a half acres before crews knocked it down.

Several people were rescued from a nearby homeless encampment, Humphrey said.

The cause of the fire was still under investigation, and crews remained on the scene to monitor hotspots, he added.

There was no damage to structures and no injuries were reported, he said.
