LOS ANGELES - A small grass fire burning on dry hills northeast of downtown Los Angeles has been contained by fire fighters.
Fire Department spokeswoman d'Lisa Davies says the blaze started around 5:30 p.m. Friday afternoon on a hill in the El Sereno neighborhood.
Davies says the fire had burned two acres of brush when firefighters arrived, but light winds prevented it from spreading quickly.
104 firefighters and four helicopters limited the blaze to 10 acres, and put it out in about 95 minutes.
The fire started when a traffic accident on a neighboring street pulled a power line down, which sparked the blaze.
The flames crested a hill with houses and apartments atop it, but firefighters were stationed there to defend the homes.
No homes in the area were evacuated and no injuries were reported.
