RAMONA (CNS) - Several small fires broke out Saturday off state Route 78 east of Ramona, which prompted officials to shut down part of the highway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The fires were reported just before 10:20 on a hillside near Sutherland Dam Road, according to the CHP website.

About an acre was scorched, according to Cal Fire.

Westbound state Route 78 was shut down at Old Julian Highway and traffic headed toward Ramona was being diverted onto westbound Old Julian Highway, the CHP reported.
