LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — For the second consecutive day, a brush fire erupted at the Hansen Dam recreational area in the San Fernando Valley amid a late season triple-digit heat wave.

The roughly three-acre fire broke out just before noon at 12200 Osborne Street in Lake View Terrace near the base of Hansen Dam, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey.

While the fire was in heavy brush, there were no structures threatened and no evacuations ordered, Humphrey said.

A knockdown was declared around 2:15 p.m.

The cause is under investigation.

Firefighters made quick work of a two-acre fire in the area Tuesday near the Hansen Dam Golf Course. That fire was being investigated.
