Firefighters Tuesday were keeping watch in the event of any flareups of a brush fire that charred about 185 acres of vegetation in canyons and hills above Lake View Terrace.

The cause of the blaze, which was reported about 2:20 p.m. Monday near the 11300 block of Wheatland Avenue at the edge of the Angeles National Forest, was under investigation.

About 100 Los Angeles Fire Department personnel, along with water- dropping helicopters and spotter planes, battled the flames at the height of the blaze, with help from Los Angeles County Fire Department camp crews. The U.S. Forest Service also had personnel assisting in the fight and took over command Monday night as the bulk of the fire moved into the Angeles National Forest.

By Tuesday afternoon, no active flames were reported in the forest, although some firefighters remained on scene in the city jurisdiction mopping up.
