POWAY, Calif. (KGTV) — Cal Fire San Diego crews are working to extinguish a vegetation fire off Highway 67 and Poway Road Friday afternoon.

At 4:49 p.m. the agency reported the fire, dubbed Sycamore Fire, was stopped at 25 acres and is 60% containment.

The blaze threatened a ranch for a time but was never an imminent hazard to homes, said Thomas Shoots, Cal Fire fire captain. No injures have been reported.

San Diego County Sheriff's Department reopened Hwy 67 after it was closed for about three hours.

The agency says firefighters will stay on scene through out the evening mopping up the fire, and building strong containment lines.

The cause of the fire was under investigation, Shoots said.
