SAN DIEGO — Cal Fire crews were able to stop a brush fire Friday afternoon that was burning in a remote area near the border in San Diego County.
Crews were called to the blaze around noon on Otay Mountain, south of Doghouse Junction. The flames were stopped at 6 acres, officials said. There was no threat to nearby buildings.
“Firefighters will remain committed through the evening to mop-up and build containment line,” Cal Fire said in a tweet.
Meanwhile, Mexican authorities could be seen battling several fires on their side of the border nearby.
