A fire that charred 46 open acres near the Mesa Grande Reservation northeast of Ramona was about 60 percent contained Monday.

Fire crews worked throughout the night to get a handle on the so-called Black Fire, which had been burning in the vicinity of Black Canyon and Mesa Grande roads since early Sunday afternoon, according to Cal Fire.

The blaze prompted authorities to temporarily evacuate three area homes Sunday, but the residents were later allowed to return, according to Cal Fire. No structural damage was reported.
