A fire burned about three acres of light-to-medium brush Tuesday in Lincoln Heights, but firefighters protected nearby homes from the flames.

The fire started about 5:50 p.m. and burned uphill by the 2500 block of Onyx Drive, near the intersection of North Broadway and North Mission Road, according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Ninety-five firefighters, with the help of a helicopter and county hand crews, extinguished the flames in less than an hour, Humphrey said.

Residents in the area were not ordered to evacuated, and none of the threatened homes were damaged, Humphrey said.

No injuries were reported.
