One of the fires is burning roughly a mile across the border, the other is 30 miles from the border. 

Neither fire is a threat to the U.S., according to Cal Fire.

Saturday, several other brush fires broke out in Tijuana, causing concern for residents of Chula Vista.

The smoke put San Diegans on alert after the Lilac Fire, which is now 92 percent contained, scorched 4,100 acres and several other large fires continued to roar across Southern California.
