El Sereno grass fire

EL SERENO —  A fire consumed about two acres of grass as well as tires and building materials this afternoon before being knocked down by about 60 firefighters, according to the L.A. Fire Department.

The fire began near the 2600 block of Lombardy Boulevard at about 1:20 pm, sending clouds of black smoke across the skies on a hot and breezy afternoon. The fire was knocked down after about 30 minutes.

The burn area included the site “where a home previously existed” but no existing structures were threatened, the LAFD said on Twitter.

No injured were reported and the cause has yet to be determined.
