VISTA (CNS) - Firefighters battled a brush fire in a residential area of Vista Monday afternoon that prompted the evacuation of some houses, according to authorities.

The fire was reported at 4:15 p.m. in the 200 block of East Bobier Drive near North Santa Fe Avenue, according to a dispatcher for North County Fire.

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department had deputies staged at a few intersections in an effort to keep traffic away from the area, according to a sheriff's department spokeswoman.

Most of the traffic control and evacuations were along Cananea Street, including where it intersects with North Santa Fe Avenue, Calera Street and North Citrus Avenue.

At least 13 units had responded to the fire within the first hour, according to the fire dispatcher.

The fire was put out sometime before 7:30 p.m., according to the sheriff's department.

There were no reports of injuries and the cause had not yet been determined.
