Los Feliz -- Firefighters watched for hot spots this morning from a brush fire that burned about an acre near Griffith Park last night before being extinguished in a little over an hour.

Crews responded to the 2300 block of Hobart Boulevard, north of Los Feliz Boulevard, about 10:40 p.m. Monday and encountered a fire burning slowly uphill with no wind and no structures threatened, according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Department helicopters made water drops and firefighters established a line around the majority of the perimeter of the flames, which were extinguished in about 65 minutes and a knock down was called at 11:45 p.m., Stewart said.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire was under investigation.
