A brush fire burned at Lake Hodges Thursday evening, according to officials.

The fire started around 5 p.m. near Lake Drive and Del Dios Highway and spread  to roughly 10 acres.

Escondido and Rancho Santa Fe firefighters responded to the scene, while CAL Fire assisted with firetrucks and an aircraft making water drops.

By  5:50 p.m., officials said the majority of the fire had been extinguished and firefighters had the flames surrounded.

Aerial views showed homes near the site of the fire, but there were no reports of structures damaged. No one was injured.

A reverse 911 call was placed to nearby residents and deputies also went door-to-door to warn people. Any residents displaced are advised to proceed to the North County Fair Mall.
