A brush fire scorched about eight acres in the Monterey Park area Monday, but no one was hurt and no structures were damaged.

The fire was reported shortly after noon near the southbound Long Beach (710) Freeway north of the Pomona (60) Freeway, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Firefighters stopped the forward progress of the flames within about an hour, the county fire department reported. Some crews remained on scene dousing hot spots.
