SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Firefighters responded to a vegetation fire in the El Cerrito neighborhood that sparked around 3:15 p.m. Thursday.

The fire was reported burning palm trees along Chollas Parkway near the Colony Village apartments.

Firefighters then say embers sparked another fire along a hillside roughly one-eighth of a mile away and began burning near some homes.

Firefighters utilized water drops to bring the flames under control. They say no homes or structures were burnt at either location.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
