A 50-acre brush fire that broke out in the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park on Sunday afternoon was 75 percent contained as of Monday afternoon.

About 120 firefighters were dispatched at 12:57 p.m. Sunday to the park, on the west side of Laguna Canyon Road, according to Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Tony Bommarito.

The fire was 75 percent contained as of 2 this afternoon, Bommarito said, and was not threatening structures.

No injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire remained under investigation, according to the OCFA.

The blaze forced the closure of Route 133 between Laguna Beach and the San Diego (405) Freeway for several hours, but was reopened Sunday night.
