Fire crews, including a helicopter, held a brush fire to one acre Saturday, though at one point the blaze threatened homes in Mira Mesa, causing one to be evacuated.

San Diego Fire-Rescue Department said they stopped forward spread of the fire, first reported at 3:46 p.m. at Montongo and Acama streets, about a half-hour later.

At about 4:30 p.m., officials cleared evacuees to return home.

They also canceled a second helicopter. Crews planned to stay on scene for two hours of mop-up operations.

There were no reported injuries. The cause of the brush fire remains under investigation.
