LAKESIDE (CNS) - A spate of small vegetation fires blackened patches of open land near El Capitan High School Wednesday.
As many as four blazes erupted in close proximity to each other off the 13000 block of Willow Road in Lakeside at about 10 a.m., according to Cal Fire.
Authorities shut down Ashwood Street between Mapleview Street and Willow Road while firefighters worked to extinguish the flames, the state agency reported.
It took crews about an hour to halt the spread of the non-injury fires, which scorched a total of roughly two acres.
It was not immediately clear what sparked the blazes, which posed no structural threats and necessitated no evacuations.
