Fire crews, along with fire fighters with the Forest Service, made quick work of a brush fire that burned near the San Gabriel River in Azusa Monday morning.
The fire was first reported at 11:23 a.m. and burned in a 100 by 100-foot spot in the area of North Todd and Sierra Madre Avenues., according to an official from the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
As fire fighters were en route, a visible plume of smoke was seen. Officials wanted a fire fighting helicopter ready to go, but once crews arrived on scene by 11:35 a.m. they were confident the fire could be contained, according to scanner reports.
By 11:51 a.m., fire fighters had a line around the blaze and extinguished it. A battalion chief, along with an engine and the Forest Service engine are still performing mop ups.
