A moderate earthquake has rattled downtown Los Angeles, but there are no immediate reports of damage or injuries. The magnitude-4.1 temblor struck Tuesday at 3:49 p.m. and was centered 10 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles near the Los Angeles International Airport.

City Fire spokesman Brian Humphrey says no damage has been reported and there has been no increase in emergency calls. He says the department is going into standard earthquake emergency mode, which means firefighters will check their districts for any possible damage.

The aftershock came two days after a magnitude-4.7 earthquake also centered near the airport.
