Crews have knocked down a brush fire in the Chatsworth area that burned about 3 acres.

The fire was reported about 11:10 a.m. along the 118 Freeway between De Soto Avenue and Topanga Canyon Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

About 3 acres of medium brush burned as 20 mph winds blow from the west, the Fire Department indicated.

Forward progress of the blaze was stopped about 12:20 p.m, the Los Angeles County Fire Department indicated.

No structures were damaged and no injuries were reported.

Firefighters were also assisted by the Ventura County Fire Department.

The highway was “heavily impacted” due to responding LAFD units, officials said. Motorists were asked to avoid the area.

The blaze burned amid an early spring heatwave, where high temperatures were expected to bake the Southland, creating fire concerns.
