Some small rubbish fires prompted closure Friday of an on-ramp to the northbound Hollywood (101) Freeway in the Echo Park area.

The fires were reported about 5:20 a.m. near the Rampart Boulevard on-ramp to the freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The flames were quickly extinguished, and the on-ramp was reopened at 6:13 a.m. A person was seen running from the area, according to a report from the scene.
