Flames charred about 80 acres, but no structures were damaged.
The fire forced evacuations at /*The Getty Center*/ and nearby /*Mount St. Mary's College*/. The Getty remained closed Thursday, but staff at the college were allowed to return. Classes are not in session.
A portion of Sepulveda Boulevard that was closed Wednesday because of the brush fire reopened Thursday afternoon.
/*Los Angeles Fire Department*/ investigators blame the fire on sparks from a weed wacker used by a crew clearing brush in the area.
The Getty Center is scheduled to reopen Friday for its usual business hours.
