Backyard fire spreads to neighbor's storage shed in Birdland

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – There were some scary moments in the Birdland area Monday as gusty winds threatened to spread a backyard trash fire to nearby brush.

"I ran over, I saw black smoke coming up over the eucalyptus tree," neighbor Ken Gust said.

A woman was burning a pile of eucalyptus leaves when she lost control of the flames and they spread to a neighbor's yard.

Firefighters arrived and were able to put the fire out before it spread too far, however the neighbor's storage shed was damaged.

The woman was cited for illegally burning debris.
