Brush fires break out behind Mission Valley IKEA

SAN DIEGO-- Firefighters were called to Mission Valley Friday to put out two small brush fires behind IKEA.

The fire was reported at 5:27 p.m. off the 2100 block of Fenton Parkway, near a stretch of trolley tracks and SDCCU Stadium, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

San Diego Fire-Rescue Department was accessing the fire through the SDCCU Stadium gate.

There are no reports of structural threats. According to witnesses, the blazes may have been intentionally set, a city spokesman says.

“There was a witness that reported to PD that they saw three individuals leaving the area of the second fire and our investigators are currently investigating that right now,” Ted Moran, with San Diego Fire-Rescue, said.
