Brush Fire Burns in Valley Center

NBC 7 San Diego

Cal Fire crews rushed to Valley Center Saturday morning to battle a brush fire consuming approximately two acres of vegetation, officials confirmed.

The blaze – dubbed the “Bear Fire” by officials – began around 11:45 a.m. at Bear Valley Heights Road and Bear Valley Lane.

Kendall Bortisser of Cal Fire said the fire was burning in light fuel at a slow rate of spread, but had some potential for growth. As of 12:15 p.m. the fire was holding at about five acres, officials said, and air tankers headed to assist had been canceled.

At this point, no structures are threatened and no injuries have been reported.
