A brush fire scorched 10 acres Saturday near Brown Field Municipal Airport in Otay Mesa before it was contained, authorities said.

No one was injured and no structures were threatened by the blaze in the vicinity of La Media Road and State Route 125, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, which reported that crews were dispatched at 2:05 p.m. and additional personnel were summoned about an hour later.

Cal Fire and the Chula Vista Fire Department crews assisted in fighting the fire, state fire officials said.

Firefighters went into mop-up mode at 5:06 p.m., said a San Diego fire dispatcher.

The cause of the blaze was under investigation.
