Firefighters contained a nearly two-acre brush fire that broke out Tuesday in the Beverly Crest area.

The fire was reported at about 10:15 a.m. in steep terrain near 40 Beverly Crest Drive, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

“The terrain is very steep, presenting challenges for firefighters on the ground, as water drops continue from the air,” said Nicholas Prange of the LAFD.

After about 90 minutes, 79 firefighters reported they were making “good progress” in extinguishing the flames, according to Prange.

By 11:50 a.m., the 1.8-acre fire was contained, and no structures were damaged, Prange said.

The cause of the blaze was being investigated.
