Firefighters quickly gained the upper hand while battling a brush fire in the Hollywood Hills on Sunday.

The three-acre fire erupted Sunday afternoon in the 2600 block of N. Cahuenga Boulevard, prompting about 90 firefighters to respond to the area near the Hollywood Bowl and the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre. 

No structures are currently threatened and no evacuations were ordered. 

One firefighter was injured during the battle and was rushed to a hospital where they are said to be in fair condition with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The CHP says the southbound Highland exit from the 101 Freeway was closed for the firefight.  

At around 3:15 p.m., firefighters reported that they had extinguished the flames. Crews are expected to remain on scene to douse any hot spots that may arise. 

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
