Wednesday, April 17—Firefighters are working on hot spots after extinguishing an eighth of an acre vegetation fire this afternoon on Walnut Street west of Davis Street.

An estimated 25 firefighters from Ramona Fire Department/Cal Fire, U.S. Forest Service, and County Fire Authority had the fire contained within 10 minutes of being dispatched at 2:47 p.m., Ramona/Cal Fire Battalion Chief Burke Kremensky said.

Because of a downed power line at the scene, fire officials called San Diego Gas & Electric to turn off the power.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, said Kremensky, adding that firefighters would not leave until they are sure no smoke or embers are emitting from the scene.
