LOS ANGELES (AP) - Crews are fighting an LA-area brush fire that has prompted evacuation orders in a Glendale neighborhood and nearby freeways.
The Los Angeles Fire Department says Sunday no injuries or structure damage have been reported as a result of the fire in the Eagle Rock community. The City of Glendale has issued mandatory evacuation orders for a nearby neighborhood.
KNBC-TV reported that California Highway Patrol had also closed the 134 Freeway and the 2 Freeway, and recommended people take the 210, 110 or 5 freeways instead.
Authorities say three helicopters are dropping water on the blaze.
The department said the fire has grown to roughly 96,800 square yards.
