[Updated] Small brush fire near Dodger Stadium contained

A small brush fire that burned in the hills next to Dodger Stadium north of downtown Los Angeles has been contained.

Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Devin Gales says it took 69 firefighters just under an hour to contain that blaze that broke out late Friday afternoon. It burned three acres.

The blaze produced a big plume of smoke visible from downtown freeways and to fans about to watch the Dodgers take on the New York Mets.

No structures were threatened and no damage or injuries were reported.
