LOS ANGELES (KABC) – Over 100 firefighters prevented a brush fire in the Hollywood Hills from spreading to homes after a fierce firefight Monday night.

The fire quickly burned at least one acre as it was being fueled by medium-to-heavy brush, according to officials.

The Coyote Fire was first reported at about 9:30 pm in the 3600 block of N Barham Boulevard, above a dog park near the Ava Apartment complex.

At least four water-dropping helicopters helped battle the blaze from the air. Los Angeles County Fire Department crews also joined the firefight as part of mutual aid.

At one point, the fire began burning towards Coyote Canyon and further away from any structures, according to LAFD.

There were no evacuation orders issued and no homes damaged. No injuries were reported.

Crews will remain in the area overnight to put out any hot spots.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
