Fire crews extinguish three-acre brush fire in Potrero

Posted: Updated:

POTRERO (CNS) - It took ground and airborne crews about a half-hour Tuesday to subdue a brush fire that blackened roughly three open acres in the southeastern reaches of San Diego County.

The non-injury blaze erupted shortly before noon in a remote area near the north end of Potrero County Park, according to Cal Fire.

Personnel aboard two air tankers and two helicopters helped ground crews extinguish the flames, which posed no structural threats, said Mike Mohler, a captain with the state agency.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
