A brush fire has reportedly grown to about 20 acres (LAFD officially says 4 to 5 acres) and may be threatening homes in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles near the Glendale border.

The blaze, which was reported to officials around 4:10 p.m., is located on the north side of the 134 Freeway east of the 2 Highway and is burning through a mix of heavy and light brush. Two westbound lanes are currently shut down. There have been no reported injuries or damage to structures yet. About 100 firefighters have responded.

Three other spot fires have been spotted in the same area.
