SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A wildfire burning in Baja California sent several offshoots over the international line south of Boulevard Thursday, blackening about 15 open acres on the U.S. side before crews could douse the flames.
The northern edge of the roughly 600-acre fire in Mexico, which has been burning since Wednesday, crossed into the southeastern reaches of San Diego County near Boundary Peak in the late morning, according to Cal Fire. No structures were threatened.
The state agency sent eight ground crews, four air tankers and three helicopters to beat back the flames, which were being pushed to the northeast by prevailing winds, Cal Fire Capt. Mike Mohler said.
By early afternoon, the personnel were gaining control of the fires on the northern side of the border, Mohler said.
The state agency also sent crews over the international boundary to battle the flames burning there in a bid to keep them from entering the United States again.
