Firefighters knocked down a brushfire that broke out this morning among some pine trees off the eastbound Santa Monica (10) Freeway near the San Diego (405) Freeway in West Los Angeles.

The flames burned near the connector road between the eastbound 10 and the southbound 405 near Butler Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department and the California Highway Patrol.
