The call came in about 11:45 a.m. from Elysian Park Drive, according to Erik Scott with the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Firefighters were " hitting the flames hard and fast from the ground and air," Scott said.

The fire was declared knocked down in a little over an hour, Scott said.

No structures were damaged and no one was injured.

The blaze appeared to be burning on a hillside near Academy Road and Stadium Way, not far from the Los Angeles Police Academy and the Dodger Stadium parking lot.

Flames were close to a public art sculpture at Angels Point, aerial video from Sky5 showed.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
