Firefighters battled a blaze that started south of Dulzura Sunday and burned an estimated eight to 10 acres, a Cal Fire spokesman said.
Captain Thomas Shoots said the fire was first reported at 12:10 p.m. in remote terrain near Marron Valley Road and Otay Mountain Truck Trail, near the U.S.-Mexico border.
He said around 95 firefighters were dispatched to the scene. Two suffered minor injuries, one to his ankle.
No structures have been threatened, and Cal Fire hasn’t issued any evacuation orders, Shoots said.
He noted that without suppression activities, the fire could have quickly grown. Because of the terrain and northeast winds blowing at 8 to 10 mph, preventing the fire’s spread is “still a challenge,” Shoots said.
The cause is under investigation.
