A brush hearth scorched between 10 and 15 acres within the Otay Mountain Wilderness east of the Otay Mesa neighborhood Friday, with the flames shifting towards the U.S.-Mexico border.
Cal Fireplace was alerted concerning the blaze simply earlier than 11:30 a.m., Capt. Brent Pascua mentioned, including that there have been no reported accidents and no constructions are threatened.
It’s unclear what precipitated the fireplace, Pascua mentioned, noting that fires are widespread within the space.
“Situations in the present day are extra favorable (in the present day) than they’ve been this week,” he mentioned, referring to earlier robust winds.
