LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles firefighters have contained a brush fire to two acres in the Tujunga area at the east end of the San Fernando Valley.

The fire erupted early Wednesday and triggered an extensive response to the rural area.

Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey says 64 firefighters fully contained the blaze in under an hour, with no loss of structures or injuries.

Southern California fire agencies are keeping an eye out as gusty winds persist this week.

The National Weather Service says the northerly flow will be strongest and most widespread Wednesday night through Friday.

Forecasters say conditions are not critical but there’s potential for small fire growth due to the gusts and the drying crop of grasses spawned by winter rains.
