SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Cal Fire stopped the spread of a brush fire that scorched 60 acres in the Otay Mountain Wilderness east of the Otay Mesa community Friday.

Cal Fire was alerted about the blaze, which was moving toward the U.S.-Mexico border, just before 11:30 a.m., Capt. Brent Pascua said. No injuries were reported and no structures were threatened by the fire.

The fire's spread was stopped shortly before 1 p.m. Friday.

It's unclear what caused the fire, Pascua said, noting that fires are common in the area.

"Conditions today are more favorable (today) than they have been this week," he said, referring to earlier strong winds.
