SOUTH PASADENA (CBS) — Fire crews have managed to contain a blaze that ignited in South Pasadena Sunday night.

Fire officials said they would continue to watch for potential flare-ups.

The brush fire was reported shortly before 9 p.m. in the backyard of a home on the 800 block of Bank Street.

The fire started burning uphill, threatening several structures, before crews contained the blaze a half-hour later.

As the flames moved uphill toward a house, the homeowner got his yard hose and battled the flames alongside firefighters.

Some fire crews remained on scene in case the blaze flares up again.

    I heard all the sirens and helicopters just a half mile away from me. Not having a TV, I knew I could count on KCAL to tell me what was going on as it was happening. Thanks!
