SAN DIEGO -- Firefighters quickly extinguished a small brush fire in the Oak Park neighborhood west of Chollas Lake Park Sunday afternoon.

The fire was reported around 2:30 p.m. near 55th Street and Redwood Street, Captain Becky Newell with San Diego Fire-Rescue Department Station 26 said.

"When we arrived at the scene we found less than an acre -- approximately 3/4 of an acre -- of medium brush and some larger trees involved," Newell said. Though no homes were under immediate threat, Newell upgraded the situation to a first-alarm fire since there were structures and a park nearby.

Crews were able to attack the fire from multiple angles and put it out quickly. The fire burned between two and three acres before it was extinguished, fire officials said.

No one was injured by the flames. The cause of the fire was under investigation.
