OTAY MESA (CNS) - A brush fire in a remote area straddling the U.S.-Mexico border was held to 30 acres Sunday, Cal Fire said.
The fire broke out about 8:20 p.m. Saturday in an inaccessible area near Otay Mesa called Tin Can Canyon, and crews monitored the blaze throughout the night, Cal Fire said.
The fire's forward spread was stopped and the blaze was being held to 25 acres in the United States and five acres in Mexico, said Capt. Mike Mohler of Cal Fire.
Mohler said hand crews and engines were working to control the blaze and would likely remain there the remainder of the day.
No structures were threatened and no injuries were reported. The cause of the fire remained under investigation, Mohler said.
