Firefighters keep house fire from spreading in North County

RAMONA, Calif. — Crews rushed to put out a fire at a Ramona home late Wednesday morning.

The flames broke out shortly after 11 a.m. on Cedar Street between Oak and Elm streets in a brush-filled residential area.

Firefighters were able to keep the flames contained to the house’s garage, Cal Fire said. The blaze did not spread to nearby vegetation and no injuries were reported.

The fire came as San Diego observed a red flag warning for extreme fire danger and someĀ portions of the county faced power outages and school closures.
