GLENDALE, Calif. - Firefighters continued to battle a large brush fire and a section of the 2 Freeway reopened in the affected area near Eagle Rock on Monday.
Firefighters with the Los Angeles Fire Department reported flare-ups and the latest numbers show the fire was at 45 acres burned and is 70 percent contained as of 6:30 p.m., according to Anita Shandi of the Glendale Fire Department.
One firefighter suffered a minor injury from a fall.
The southbound connector ramp of the 2 Freeway at the 134 Freeway interchange remained closed through Monday morning as traffic was diverted to the 134 Freeway.
The lanes were reopened by 11 a.m.
The brush fire sparked near Eagle Rock Sunday afternoon around 4 p.m. The fire spread to homes in the area promoting evacuations to be ordered for residents in the Glenoaks Canyon area. The evacuation was eventually lifted by 10 p.m. as crews contained the fire's forward progression.
Officials also warned people not to donate to those calling or soliciting about funds that benefit firefighters, as they have been deemed as scams.
No buildings burned and no civilian injuries have been reported, according to the LAFD.
