By late afternoon, there was no visible smoke, but crews were tending to some "hot spots" where there was still some heat, she said.

The fire was entirely surrounded by a containment line as of 2 p.m., and crews were in "mop-up mode", with firefighting crews "knocking down smoke and heat in the interior of the fire", according to Seneca Smith, a spokeswoman for the Angeles National Forest agency.

Firefighters also tackled another brush fire reported near Lake View Terrace around 11:30 a.m. PT on Sunday. A few residents voluntarily left but no homes were damaged. The fire is located in the 2900 block of N. Mandeville Canyon Road in Brentwood, northwest of the Getty Museum. However, by 1:30 p.m. PT, a media advisory had been issued, upgrading the fire to a "major emergency response with over 115 LAFD firefighters on scene".

To the northeast, firefighters are making progress against a blaze burning away from foothill homes in the Lake View Terrace neighborhood and into Angeles National Forest. Ground crews got help from water-dropping aircraft battling two brush fires in Los Angeles Sunday.
