LA MESA, Calif. — A small brush fire in La Mesa briefly shut down trolley service in the area Saturday before it was extinguished.

The fire was reported at about 10 a.m. on a hillside in the 8700 block of Fletcher Parkway, adjacent to a trolley line and west of state Route 125, said Heartland Fire and Rescue spokesman Sonny Saghera.

Trolleys were halted for about 20 minutes as fire crews worked the approximately 40-square-feet blaze, Saghera said.

All trolley service was restored after crews got the blaze under control, he said.
