Three small brush fires in the Rolando neighborhood of San Diego burned more than an acre Thursday.

Crews responded shortly after 1 p.m. to an area on College Avenue south of University Avenue, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

Two helicopters were also deployed to drop water on the fires, according to the department.

The north and south ends of one fire were contained around 1:15 p.m., the department announced on its Twitter feed.

There was no structural damage, and it was unclear what started the brush fires.
