The blaze near the Getty Center that burned 90 acres near the Sepulveda Pass has been contained, Los Angeles Fire Department officials said Sunday.

The blaze, which started Friday, did not damage any buildings or cause any injuries. A handful of firefighters will remain on the scene overnight to guard against flare-ups, officials said.

The fire, which started in heavy brush on the east side of the 405 Freeway near Getty Center Drive, snarled traffic and prompted a temporary closure of the museum Friday.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
