EL CAJON (CNS) - About two acres of hillside burned near Grossmont College in El Cajon Monday, and fire trucks temporarily blocked two southbound lanes of state Route 125, along with the off-ramp toward the campus.

The fire was spotted burning uphill toward the college at about 2:20 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

Heartland Fire & Rescue firefighters in fire engines and a helicopter were dispatched to extinguish the blaze, a Heartland Fire & Rescue dispatcher said. Fire personnel from Santee, Lakeside and San Diego also helped put out the flames.

Authorities issued a SigAlert for the the two right southbound lanes and the off-ramp, but it was canceled shortly before 5 p.m., according to the CHP.
