Firefighters had the blaze, which broke out about 7 p.m. Monday, 100 percent under control by midnight, the Los Angeles Times reported. Water drops were used to contain the flames while ground crews cut a fire line around the perimeter.
At one point, the fire edged close to area homes, though 3 mph southerly winds helped to gradually push the flames toward the ocean.
The cause of the 30-acre fire had not been determined but a report of a transformer explosion was being investigated as a possible cause.
"The power flicked off … . We saw a big blue flash," area resident Chris Mack told KTLA-TV, Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles Times reported there were no injuries and no evacuations.
