Fire crews Wednesday were working to contain a more than 100-acre blaze burning in the Shadow Hills area of Los Angeles.

Firefighters were sent to the 10000 block of North Sunland Way shortly after 1 p.m. on what was initially reported as a five-acre brush fire, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The fire was burning uphill with winds of about 8 mph reported in the area, and the blaze grew to 107 acres by about 3:45 p.m., the LAFD reported.

Los Angeles County Fire Department and Burbank Fire Department units were called in to assist the LAFD in containing the fire. No homes were immediately threatened by the fire and no injuries were reported.

The flames were burning in a remote canyon area difficult to access on foot, so the blaze was being fought primarily with water- and retardant-dropping aircraft.
