Fire scorched a City Heights canyon Wednesday, briefly threatening a cul-de-sac of homes. 

The fire was reported at 49th Street and University Avenue just before 2 p.m.

The fire sent a large amount of smoke into the sky according to an employee at nearby Colina Park Golf Course. 

Folks at the golf course originally thought it was smog but soon realized the smoke was from a brush fire.

No injuries were reported. No homes were damaged and families told NBC 7 they are happy they were spared.

Firefighters said they are currently mopping up the area and could be in the area for the next two to three hours.

The message from SDFD: Cut back tall weeds and brush that are near your home. When it's dry and windy like this, it could save your family.
