LOS ANGELES (AP) - A wildfire that has charred 184 acres of brush in northern Los Angeles and the Angeles National Forest has burned away from homes and is not threatening any structures.

The blaze that broke out Monday afternoon in the Lake View Terrace neighborhood quickly spread uphill through brushy ridges.

It was 60 percent contained Tuesday morning and officials hoped to have it fully contained later in the day.

The U.S. Forest Service took over command of the firefight once the majority of the blaze was in the national forest.

Fire retardant and airborne water drops helped crews surround the flames.
