VISTA (CNS) - A man with a gas can was seen running from the scene of a small brushfire at around 11 a.m. Sunday on the north side of State Route 78 in Vista.
Traffic was backed up as firefighters closed one lane of the westbound freeway, and the Mar Vista Drive off-ramp, to battle the flames. The fire burned an estimated 1/2 acre, including seven juniper trees.
However, no people were injured and no homes were damaged, according to an eyewitness, freelance videographer Mark Jeanette.
Traffic was back to normal approximately one hour later. Witnesses reported to Jeanette that they saw someone running from the scene with a gas can.
