A brush fire sparked near a middle school in Mira Mesa Saturday morning, officials confirmed.

The blaze began around 11:50 a.m. in a baseball field near Challenger Middle School, located at 10801 Parkdale Ave.

The medium-fuel brush fire spread slowly, and firefighters were able to knock it down within 20 minutes.

A parade on Mira Mesa Boulevard caused some access issues for crews, but they were still able to tackle the fire before it could spread any further.

Crews remained at the scene to mop up hotspots.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
