Firefighters quickly extinguished a small brush fire that ignited on both sides of the Pasadena (110) Freeway in Lincoln Heights and charred about a quarter of an acre of grass, authorities said.

The brusher near Figueroa Street and San Fernando Road was reported at 1:35 p.m., Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott said.

Firefighters quickly put out the fire, Scott said. No official knockdown time was available.

The California Highway patrol issued a SigAlert at 2:25 p.m. and temporarily shut down the number 2 and 3 lanes, as well as the San Fernando Road onramp on the 110 Freeway so firefighters could position their equipment.

The SigAlert was cancelled at 3:14 p.m., according to the CHP.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation.
