SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Crews stopped the spread of a brush fire that erupted in the Rancho San Diego area Sunday evening and briefly threatened structures.

The fire was reported shortly before 6:30 p.m. near Brabham Street and Greenwick Road, according to Cal Fire officials. The blaze was close to Cal Fire's headquarters.

Cal Fire crews, along with San Miguel Fire Protection District personnel, battled the fire on the ground and in the air.

As the fire moved, concerns were raised over a state-owned transmission tower that stood on the top of a hill, but it was not damaged.

Crews were eventually able to stop the spread of the fire at 10 acres burned.

No injuries were reported and no evacuations were necessary.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
