SAN DIEGO — Firefighters Friday were able to put out a brush fire that broke out near a residential area in National City, according to fire officials.

SkyFOX was over the location around 4:30 p.m. in the 2600 block of East Plaza Boulevard, where first responders were seen actively hosing down the white smoke to contain the fire from spreading.

Evacuations were put in place as 13 homes were threatened from a tree fire that grew to burn about a half an acre of brush, the National City Fire Department said. Multiple departments from around the county responded to the fire.

No injuries were reported, but the fire did leave minor burns to the eaves of one home.

Fire officials say residents will soon be able to go back to their homes as crews ensure the blaze is completely extinguished.
