    A brush fire broke out in Chula Vista on Wednesday afternoon after a trash truck struck a power pole, according to officials.

    Flames could be seen around 12:30 p.m. near Heritage Road and Main Street east of Interstate 805.

    The fire spread to 24 acres before firefighters were able to put it out.

    The cause of the fire was determined to be a trash truck that hit a power line. This prompted a power outage at SeaWorld's Aquatica water park nearby and visitors had to leave. Around 2,000 customers were also affected by the outage.

    No structures were threatened and no injuries were reported during the incident.
