A wildfire unfold throughout brushy open terrain Tuesday in a hilly space of Barona, southeast of Ramona, charring about 20 acres, posing structural threats and prompting residential evacuations earlier than crews gained the higher hand on the flames.

The blaze erupted for unknown causes shortly earlier than 4 p.m. off Wildcat Canyon Street within the Barona group, in keeping with Cal Fireplace.

Inside about 45 minutes, the flames had scorched 10 to fifteen acres and had been threatening properties alongside Barona Mesa Street, Calistoga Place, Moonglow Drive and San Vicente Street, the state company reported.

Authorities suggested residents of these areas to arrange to evacuate, and a few of them cleared out of their properties to be on the protected facet, Cal Fireplace Capt. Thomas Shoots mentioned.

By 5:15 p.m., crews had halted the unfold of the blaze, with no structural injury or accidents reported.

The reason for the fireplace was below investigation.
