Posted: Updated:

LINDA VISTA (CBS 8) -  Flames uncover an illegal marijuana growing operation in Linda Vista.

Firefighters were called to the area near Park Mesa Way and Genesee Avenue around 11 p.m. Sunday.

They made the discovery while putting out a brush fire in a canyon.

Police say while it wasn't a massive amount of pot, the discovery of a small number of marijuana plants warrant a DEA investigation.

It's not clear if the pot burned in the brush fire. Firefighters were checked out by paramedics just as a precaution.

DEA agents will investigate if there are more plants hidden in the canyon.
