Things were back to normal Tuesday in Pacoima, but there were some scary moments earlier as three brush blazes broke out, disrupting freeway and street traffic before firefighters snuffed them out.

While officials had not yet confirmed the causes of the fires, arson investigators were reviewing evidence at the scenes.

The fires were reported about 5:35 p.m. Monday in the 10600 block of Glenoaks Boulevard, the 13900 block of Paxton Street and along the eastbound Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway near San Fernando Road, according to Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

It took firefighters a little over an hour to put the fires out, Scott said.

No injuries were reported and no structures were damaged, according to Scott.

The fire department’s arson section was investigating the cause of the blazes, Scott said.
