Several structures were threatened by the blaze, Cal Fire said. The fire threat to homes on Rangeland Road was mitigated by 3 p.m.
Several aircraft could be seen dropping fire retardant near the blaze to try and prevent it from spreading. An SDG&E aircrane was also dispatched to the scene to help firefighters.
The blaze comes roughly two weeks after the Pasqual Fire scorched 365 acres in in the Pasqual Valley, the same area the Rangeland Fire scorched. Remnants from the Pasqual Fire could be seen Thursday in the form of fire retardant.
