Crews contained a brush fire that began Sunday south of the border and crossed into the U.S., county fire officials said.
Once the fire jumped over the border from Mexico, it burned in a remote area filled with canyons and ridges east of the Otay port of entry.
It expanded into the region at about 4 p.m. and burned about 20 acres by 4:50 p.m., according to Cal Fire San Diego. Officials dubbed it the Border10 fire.
A half hour later, Cal Fire reported that firefighters stopped the spread.
Air and ground resources remain on scene to mop-up and continue containment. There are no structures in the area.
