LOS ANGELES (CNS) - It took about half an hour this afternoon for 31 Los Angeles firefighters aided by their Los Angeles County counterparts to put out a vegetation fire next to the Glenn Anderson (105) Freeway in South Los Angeles.

The fire was reported at 4:13 p.m. along eastbound lanes of the Glenn Anderson Freeway at the top of the Central Avenue off-ramp, according to the California Highway Patrol.

“Though as many as five detached garages were briefly threatened, teamwork by city and county responders prevented harm to those buildings or nearby homes,'' said the Los Angeles Fire Department's Brian Humphrey.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire was under investigation, Humphrey said.

The numbers 3 and 4 eastbound lanes of the Glenn Anderson Freeway were shut down between the Harbor (110) Freeway and Central Avenue to accommodate firefighting equipment, the CHP said.
