Brush fire off Interstate 8 at Morena Boulevard possibly reignites

Arson investigator called to scene

SAN DIEGO - Firefighters are responding to the same area where three separate small brush fires erupted off Interstate 8 at Morena Boulevard in Mission Valley after reports that a fire may have reignited.

Just before 11 p.m., the CHP's CAD page reported that a fire off I-8 near Interstate 5 may have possibly rekindled.

The three fires were originally reported at about 7 p.m. Wednesday. The California Highway Patrol closed the eastbound and westbound I-8 off-ramps to Morena Boulevard for more than two hours while firefighters knocked down the flames.

All three were deemed suspicious, and an arson investigator has also been called to the scene. There is no word yet on what caused the fires.
