Firefighters stopped the spread of a fire that charred around 15 acres of brush Saturday in a canyon area near Santee Lakes.
The non-injury fire, which was reported shortly after 8 a.m., was burning in an unpopulated area north of the lakes, according to Heartland Fire & Rescue and sheriff’s officials.
No structures were threatened, and crews expected to have the blaze fully contained by 4 p.m., according to Cal Fire.
