RAMONA, Calif. — One person was injured when a vehicle fire spread to nearby brush in Ramona Wednesday night.
Just after 10 p.m., a vehicle hit a pole, causing a transformer and the vehicle to catch fire, according to California Highway Patrol. Cal Fire crews were called out to the scene and extinguished the blaze, according to a tweet by the state agency.
