A fire burned items at a homeless encampment and less than a quarter-acre of brush Friday in a ravine deep inside Debs Regional Park in Highland Park.

The fire broke out near the 4700 block of Griffin Avenue at 12:47 p.m. and was knocked down about 1 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The fire was mostly knocked down by a water drop and the rest was extinguished by LAFD ground crews who hiked to the scene, the department reported. The cause of fire is under investigation. No injuries were reported.
