A pair of small brush fires briefly threatened a few homes in the Lake Murray area Wednesday before ground and airborne crews were able to subdue the flames.
The non-injury blazes erupted for unknown reasons about 1:30 p.m. alongside Jackson Drive, near Hemingway Avenue and Tuxedo Road, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
“There were no injuries, no damage to structures,” deputy fire chief Kelly Zombro said. “Everything pretty much just stayed in the vegetation.”
It took firefighters about half an hour to halt the spread of the flames, which charred roughly 1 1/2 acres combined, SDFRD spokeswoman Monica Munoz said.
Fire investigators were seeking to determine what sparked the blazes but Zombro said the two fires could be connected.
