Firefighters are mopping up after a brush fire charred five acres in Mission Hills on Tuesday, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported.
The fire was reported at 11:40 a.m. at 15001 W. Mission Hills Road, near Eden Memorial Park Cemetery and Providence Holy Cross Medical Center.
“This incident was initially called in as an explosion which, at this time, is believed to be a transformer and on scene reports indicate downed power lines,” LAFD said in a statement.

LAFD said crews were able to stop all forward progress on the fire within an hour.
No injuries or damage were reported. The cause of the blaze is being investigated.
