BONSALL (CNS) - A motor home caught fire Monday and the blaze spread to surrounding brush scorching nearly five acres near Bonsall, authorities said.
The nearly 5-acre blaze appeared to have been caused by a motor home which caught fire just after 3 p.m. while on Gopher Canyon Road west of Interstate 15, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The blaze spread to the surrounding brush and moved into a citrus grove, Cal Fire spokesman Mike Mohler said. Initially, firefighters in five trucks and two helicopters, along with two air tankers and two hand crews, battled the blaze, which did not threaten homes.
Additional personnel were brought in to help combat the fire's spread, of which Mohler said "forward progress had been stopped."
The Gopher Canyon Road exit from Interstate 15 was closed while firefighters continued to fight to contain the blaze.
No injuries were reported.
