SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Crews Tuesday snuffed out the remaining hot spots of a 95-acre weekend fire in Mission Trails Regional Park.

The blaze erupted for unknown reasons in the open-space area east of Mission Valley shortly after 2 p.m. Sunday, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

As crews worked to subdue the flames, parks authorities closed a stretch of Father Junipero Serra Trail, along with Climbers Loop, Oak Grove Loop, Kwaay Paay Trail and a visitor center, SDFRD spokesman Lee Swanson said.

A firefighter suffered heat-related trauma while battling the blaze and was taken to a hospital. No other injuries were reported.

As of late Tuesday afternoon, most of the park was open again to the public, though a few trails in the burn area remained off-limits until further notice, Swanson said.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
