Firefighters extinguished a small brush fire in Griffith Park on Monday afternoon.

Flames erupted around 1:41 p.m. on the northwest side of the Toyon helispot within the park, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

Crews on the air and ground put out the blaze in around one hour and 23 minutes. It scorched about 1 1/2 acres, according to the Fire Department.

Footage from the scene showed plumes of smoke over the area.

No injuries were reported, and no structures were threatened, the Fire Department said.

Rangers with the L.A. Department of Recreations and Parks were at the scene to help contain the incident.

In July, a 25-acre brush fire prompted the evacuation of the Griffith Observatory. That blaze did not damage any structures.
