A fire in Lake View Terrace burned 8 acres of brush Saturday afternoon before firefighters could knock it down, authorities said.

The blaze lasted less than an hour, burning away from structures, down steep terrain around the 11800 block of Terra Vista Way.

No one was injured, and no buildings were reported damaged, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Matt Spence.

More than 75 firefighters put out the blaze with the help of water-dropping planes and helicopters, Spence said.
