CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) - Fire crews battled two brush fires in a South Bay neighborhood Wednesday after an ember from one ignited another.

Chula Vista firefighters knocked down the first brush fire off Faivre Street before an ember ignited a seconded fire in the same area. 

The second brush fire burned in a riverbed near a homeless encampment.

A fire helicopter was called in to help contain the blaze, which grew to at least one and a half acres.

There was no immediate threat to structures reported.
