About 5 acres of medium-to-heavy brush burned in Highland Park Friday night, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The blaze was reported shortly before 10 p.m. in the 300 block of South Avenue 60, the LAFD said in an alert.

Aerial footage from Sky5 showed the flames near the northbound 110 Freeway, as well as homes that could have been endangered if the fire continued to spread.

By about 11:10 p.m., firefighters had gained control of the fire, stopping its forward progress at five acres.

In total, 96 firefighters battled the blaze and were able to reach full containment in about one hour and 20 minutes. Fire crews remained on scene through the night to extinguish hot spots and put out any smoldering debris.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
