RAMONA, Calif. (KGTV) -- Cal Fire San Diego responded quickly to a house fire in Ramona that spread to nearby brush. 

According to firefighters, the fire started inside a structure on the 16000 block of Salida Del Sol. The fire quickly spread to nearby vegetation fueled by low humidity and high winds. 

Firefighters responded with ground crews and dropped water on the blaze using helicopters. Crews were able to quickly extinguish the flames, but say the home was a total loss. 

A Red Flag Warning went into effect for parts of San Diego County early Sunday morning and was extended until Wednesday night at 5 p.m.
