A burning vehicle sparked a small wildfire on Sunday near the 210 Freeway in north Los Angeles, authorities said.

The fire, in the 8300 block of La Tuna Canyon Road, began about 2:50 p.m. and spread quickly through an acre of brush, said d'Lisa Davies of the Los Angeles City Fire Department.

The flames then began burning uphill and spot fires helped push the blaze to about 20 acres, Davies said. The blaze was extinguished at 5:22 p.m., she said.

No evacuations were ordered, Davis said, and no one was injured.
