A resident escaped injury when a back-country home near Mount Woodson caught fire Monday, officials said.
The blaze erupted shortly after 1 p.m. in the 16000 block of Salida del Sol in Ramona. It took firefighters about 40 minutes to subdue the flames, according to Cal Fire.
The one resident who was in the house at the time was able to get out safely, said Jon Heggie, a fire captain with the state agency.
Though the blaze broke out during a period of heightened weather-related wildfire danger, ground crews and personnel aboard firefighting aircraft were able to keep the flames from spreading to nearby vegetation, Heggie said.
No injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
