Posted: Updated:

LAKESIDE (CNS) - A wildfire spread over rugged open terrain near El Capitan Reservoir Tuesday, scorching scores of acres but causing no reported structural damage or injuries.

The blaze erupted for unknown reasons off the 15800 block of El Monte Road in the Lakeside area shortly before 1:30 p.m., according to the U.S. Forest Service.

Ground and airborne crews worked to contain the flames, which blackened roughly 110 acres by early evening, the federal agency reported.

The blaze moved away from developed areas as it spread through the outskirts of Cleveland National Forest, authorities said.
