VISTA, Calif. - Firefighters extinguished a two-acre brush fire that broke out Monday in a Vista riverbed.
The non-injury fire near the 1300 block of Specialty Drive near Poinsettia Drive was reported shortly before 11 a.m., a North County fire dispatcher said.
Firefighters from Vista, Carlsbad, Oceanside and San Marcos arrived to find the blaze slowly spreading toward Progress Drive, and had it out by early afternoon, according to Battalion Chief Ned Vander Pol of the Vista Fire Department.
The blaze apparently was started accidentally and may be connected to a transient encampment in the area, according to Vander Pol. No structures were damaged, Vander Pol said.
