A modest-sized brush fire near Viejas Casino prompted some brief residential evacuations Monday while firefighters doused the flames.
The blaze erupted for unknown reasons about 2 p.m. in the area of Fig Tree Way and Viejas Grade Road in Alpine. Sheriff’s deputies cleared residents out of homes on the latter rural roadway while crews attacked the fire on the ground and aboard firefighting aircraft.
By shortly after 2:30 p.m., the personnel had the spread of the blaze halted at roughly three acres, officials said. No structural damage or injuries were reported.
