The fire, which began at North 47th Street East and Mount Emma Road just after 3 p.m., was completely contained as of 10:10 p.m., said Los Angeles County Fire Department Inspector Jason Hurd. Winds out of the southwest were pushing the fire east at about 10 mph in 95-degree heat, and it jumped from 25 to 50 acres in a slightly more than an hour, a county fire dispatcher said. The blaze was threatening some structures, but according to ABC7, there were only a few outbuildings in the area and no homes.
