Firefighters are battling small flames burning near Ramona

SAN DIEGO – A small brush fire broke out Monday night in northeastern San Diego County, requiring an air response from firefighters to slow the spread of the fire.

The fire, called Ranch Fire, was reported just before 5 p.m. near Eagle Peak Road, west of the Pine Hills community, according to Cal Fire San Diego. Firefighters say it had scorched three acres with a slow spread of grass.

It is “difficult” to access the ground, according to Cal Fire, but the agency’s firefighting aircraft were reported as “making good progress as engines / crews / dozers gain access.”

“Firefighters will remain on the scene through the evening building’s containment line around the fire,” Cal Fire said in a tweet.

Additional information about the brush fire was not immediately available.
