Posted: Updated:

SANTEE (CBS 8) - Authorities are investigating what sparked a brush fire in the San Diego Riverbed. 

Calls came in around 2 a.m. Tuesday. Drivers reported seeing flames near state Route 52 and Mission Gorge Road in Santee.

Dry, hot conditions helped the fire spread, but crews were able to knock it down without too much damage.

Investigators say it may have been started by transients who frequent the area.
