LAKESIDE, Calif. — A car fire on a rural road about a mile north of Lake Jennings spread into an adjacent grassy field late Friday afternoon, blackening about four open acres before ground and air crews were able to douse the flames.

The blaze off Willow Road near Louis Stelzer County Park in Lakeside erupted about 5:15 p.m., according to Cal Fire.

It took firefighters about 45 minutes to corral the flames, which posed no imminent threats to homes in the sparsely developed area, said Thomas Shoots, a fire captain with the state agency.

No structural damage or injuries were reported.
