The Los Angeles Fire Department has extinguished a ten-acre brush fire that threatened residential homes in East LA, according to a statement released by the LA County Sheriff's Department. Still, the city has closed the roads around the fire to make sure that there are no residual hot spots that could ignite it again. Roads closed are around Eastern Ave., between City Terrace Drive and North Marianna Ave. The fire was contained on the hill just west of Eastern Avenue.

In the meantime, authorities suggest taking 710 instead. The announcement that the road would be closed for another hour came at approximately 3:09 p.m. today.
