    A brush fire burned 18 acres in unincorporated El Cajon on Tuesday, according to officials.

    The incident happened around 2:20 p.m. at 12970 Highway 8 Business, near Interstate 8.

    Officials said the fire burned across the street from a mobile home park. Thick black smoke drifted toward I-8 slowing traffic.

    Residents used ladders and hoses to help firefighters fight the fire.

    For a short time limited evacuations were ordered, but as firefighters cleared the flames evacuations were canceled.
