Firefighters on Sunday were investigating arson as the possible cause of a fire that burned nearly 50 acres of brush Saturday in Griffith Park, said Los Angles Fire Capt. Armando Hogan.

The blaze was fully contained Saturday night. It forced the evacuation of the Travel Town railroad museum shortly after 2 p.m. Later, four other fires ignited nearby. More than 300 firefighters brought the flames under control by 7 p.m.
