Brush fire near 210 Freeway caused by car

Flames from a burning car sparked a half-acre brush fire near the Foothill (210) Freeway and Sunland Boulevard Monday afternoon, fire officials said.

The brush fire was reported at 1:39 p.m. and it took 47 firefighters about 30 minutes to put it out, said Brian Humphrey, a spokesman with the Los Angeles Fire Department.

No injuries or structural damage were reported, he said.

The vehicle itself was badly damaged, but the driver was not injured, Humphrey said.

Three of the eastbound lanes were shut down until about 3:30 p.m., said Officer Patrick Kimball of the California Highway Patrol.
