San Diego Fire-Rescue Department crews, including two helicopters, stopped the progress of a quarter-acre vegetation fire Sunday near Interstate 5.

At about 12:40 p.m. Sunday, several fire crews reported seeing smoke south of state Route 52 and north of Garnet Avenue.

By 1:03 p.m., firefighters said the fire was stopped and “the lack of wind at the moment is in our favor.” They said the fire didn’t present a threat to nearby structures.

Crews remained in the area cutting a line around the burn site to prevent spread.

Firefighters battled another small vegetation fire off a local freeway Saturday, near Interstate 8.
