The blaze began spreading for unknown reasons near the westbound SR-94 exit to 28th Street about 9:30 a.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

Crews were able to quickly halt the spread of the flames, which blackened about an eighth of an acre and sent a heavy column of brown smoke into the air just south of Balboa Park, SDFRD spokeswoman Monica Munoz said.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
