A brush fire that started in Montecito Heights Saturday was halted later that same afternoon, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The fire, which grew from 3 to 7 acres over a little more than two hours before it was put out, was reported in the 4100 block of Monterey Road at about 2:30 p.m.

The blaze was in medium to heavy brush and 29 fire companies were on scene battling the fire, according to the LAFD.

No injuries were reported and no structures were damaged, though units were on standby near Bushnell Way and Terrill Avenue in case nearby homes were endangered by the blaze, according to the LAFD.

Cleanup operations are likely to continue into Sunday, according to the LAFD.
