Fire crews quickly extinguish Otay Mountain fire

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Cal Fire crews made quick work Tuesday of a brush fire in a steep section of the south side of Otay Mountain.

The blaze started for unknown reasons about 12:30 p.m. and was contained 40 minutes later to one acre, Cal Fire Capt. Mike Mohler said.

Firefighters had to be flown to the site by helicopter because the blaze was in an inaccessible location, Mohler said.

He said the fire was in a rural area near the border, so did not threaten any structures.
