A fire that charred a garage, a fence and a little over 5 acres of brush in Escondido was sparked by someone using a hand grinder on a vehicle near dry grass.
The two-alarm fire in a residential neighborhood along Lemon Avenue near Gamble Lane was reported shortly after 2 p.m. Sunday, according to Escondido Fire Department Battalion Chief Mike Bertrand.
Firefighters from Escondido, Rancho Santa Fe, San Marcos and Cal Fire contained the blaze at 5.1 acres, Bertrand said. No one was injured.
