More than 50 firefighters were dispatched to put out a grass and brush fire that broke out in the median of the Arroyo Seco Parkway (110 Freeway) during the start of the evening rush hour.
The fire, which was first reported at about 4:42 pm, had burned about a half acre near Hill Street before it was declared knocked down in about 30 minutes, according to preliminary information from the L.A. Fire Department.
No further information was available.
Update on Tuesday, July 10: A fire in about the same spot began during the Tuesday morning commute, according to traffic reporter Desmond Shaw.
A fire that sparked up yesterday on the 110 South at Hill reignited this morning! @LAFD blocking the 2 left lanes and the drive is horrible out of Highland Park. Use Broadway or Spring into #DTLA instead #KNXEyeintheSky @KNX1070 pic.twitter.com/FVV0Vy6OEI
