A brush fire that started Monday on the Mexican side of the border reached Otay Mesa on Tuesday before being brought under control.
Cal Fire responded with air and ground units to an area about two miles east of the Otay Mesa Port of Entry known as “Tin Can Canyon.”
The blaze, which was held at about two acres, posed no threat to homes or other buildings, the state agency advised.
Officials said a number of other brush fires are currently burning in Mexico directly to the southeast of Tijuana.
“The situation remains very dynamic due to the number of fires burning in the area,” the agency said.
Crews remained at the scene overnight Tuesday to monitor the fires that continued to burn south of the border.
