DULZURA (CNS) - A traffic collision started a brush fire that spread to 20 acres today north of Jamul and Dulzura in East County, according to Cal Fire.

The blaze was reported about 1:30 p.m. on Honey Springs Road, about 14 miles north of state Highway 94, said Roxanne Provaznik, a spokeswoman for Cal Fire.

No structures were immediately threatened by the fire, but the San Diego Sheriff's Department, U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service responded to help fight the flames.

About 150 firefighters responded to the blaze, along with ten engines, four fire crews, two bulldozers, two helicopters, two air tankers and a water tender, Provaznik said.
