Firefighters extinguish Valley Center brush fire

Friday, May 3—It took ground and airborne crews about a half- hour today to subdue a brush fire that blackened several open acres in a rural area north of Escondido.

The blaze off Lilac and Sierra Rojo roads in Valley Center erupted for unknown reasons about 10:30 a.m., according to Cal Fire.

Ground personnel attacked the flames with help from an air tanker that dropped fire retardant on the burning foliage, said Ray Chaney, a battalion chief with the state agency.

The roughly two-acre fire caused no reported injuries or structural damage, Chaney said. The cause was under investigation.
