Crews contain brush fire in Vista

Posted: Updated:

VISTA (CNS) - It took firefighters about a half-hour Tuesday to subdue a blaze that blackened roughly three acres on a hillside next to a North County freeway.

Flames began spreading about 1 p.m. on the slope alongside the westbound lanes of State Route 78, near Sycamore Avenue in Vista, according to North County Dispatch.

Crews were able to keep the fire from damaging homes in the area, though it did burn an outbuilding, a dispatcher said. No injuries were reported.

The cause of the blaze was under investigation.
