Firefighters responded Tuesday to a brush fire in the hills above the 134 Freeway, just east of the 2  Freeway, officials said.

The fire was reported about 10:48 a.m. in the hills on the opposite side of Glenoaks Canyon, officials said.

Residents on Sleepy Hollow Drive in Glenoaks Canyon were being prepared for possible evacuation, city spokesman Tom Lorenz said.

The California Highway Patrol issued a SigAlert as officers prepared to close the third and fourth lanes of the westbound 134 Freeway just east of the 2 Freeway.

Water-dropping helicopters were called to assist with the fire, which has grown to several acres in the Los Angeles-Eagle Rock area adjacent to Glendale, officials said.
