Things were pretty much back to normal Sunday along a freeway in Chatsworth, but it took 30 Los Angeles firefighters 19 minutes earlier to put out flames in brush next to the Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway, a Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman said.

The blaze was reported Saturday afternoon on the westbound Ronald Reagan Freeway east of Topanga Canyon Boulevard, said the LAFD’s Brian Humphrey.

Firefighters reported the burned area was contained to less than one- quarter acre of land, Humphrey said.

No injuries were reported and no structures were threatened, he said. However, traffic was backed up for some time as the flames, smoke and emergency vehicles were visible to motorists along the roadway.
