The fire began just before 11:30 p.m. Monday in the 10500 block of Woldrich Street near the 210 Freeway, Eric Scott stated in a news alert from the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The blaze had scorched 21 acres and was 100 percent contained as of Tuesday morning, Scott stated.

A SigAlert was issued late Monday night for the closure of the eastbound and westbound Wheatland Avenue off-ramps while the fire continued to burn near the freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol’s traffic incident log.

More than 100 firefighters were sent to battle the blaze with several remaining at the scene Tuesday morning, according to Scott.

Arson investigators were trying to determine the cause of the fire, which did not damage any structures.

Another brush fire that broke out Monday night in La-Canada Flintridge was quickly doused by firefighters after burning 3 acres.

Hot and dry conditions had prompted officials to issue red flag warnings across much of Southern California prior to Monday's fires.
