It took firefighters about an hour Monday morning to put out flames in an acre of vegetation in Eagle Rock, authorities said.
The fire was reported at 2:39 a.m. at 4701 North Townsend Avenue, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart. Winds were 10 mph, she said.
By 3:30 a.m., progress was sufficient to release aircraft that had made water drops, Stewart said.
Firefighters cleared vegetation around the blaze and put it out at 3:41 a.m., she said. Firefighters planned to remain on the scene for several hours making sure all hot spots were out.
No injuries were reported, Stewart said.
