SANTEE (CNS) - A fire of unknown origin blackened brush and damaged a residence, a garage and several vehicles Friday on property just north of Gillespie Field airport.
The blaze in the 10500 block of Prospect Avenue in Santee began spreading about 3:30 p.m., according to Heartland Fire & Rescue.
The flames apparently erupted in a pile or container of rubbish, said Sonny Saghera, a spokesman for the emergency-services agency. The cause was not immediately clear.
No injuries were reported, Saghera said.
