Investigators have begun looking into what caused yesterday's hillside brush fire in Eagle Rock and Glendale, which ultimately grew to 60 acres, triggered voluntary area evacuations, and required about 300 firefighters to extinguish. The fire, which "broke out near the interchange between the 134 and 2 Freeways at about 4:10 p.m." is now fully contained, and no homes were damaged and no one was injured, according to abc7.com.
