Firefighters battled a brush fire in the Jamul area on Thursday, Cal Fire officials said.

The fire was reported around 1:10 p.m. near Otay Lakes Road and the north side of State Route 94.

Cal Fire officials said the blaze spread quickly and scorched roughly 10 to 15 acres.

A bulldozer, 15 fire engines, three fire crews, two air tankers, one water tender, two helicopters and two chief officers were assigned to tackle the fire. Cal Fire officials said additional engines were being staged to assist, if needed.

By 2:05 p.m., fire officials said the spread of the fire had stopped. Firefighters will monitor the scene for the next three to four hours and mop up hotspots.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. No injuries have been reported.
