    A motorhome fire in Jacumba turned into a small brush fire after flames extended into some nearby vegetation, Cal Fire officials said.

    The fire began around 12:15 p.m. at Carrizo Gorge Road and Old Highway 80, just east of the Jacumba Airfield. Once it jumped from the motorhome to the brush, it scorched about two acres, Cal Fire officials said.

    The fire burned south, in light fuel, toward the U.S.-Mexico border. No structures were threatened and no evacuations were ordered. Cal Fire was confident crews would be able to knock out the blaze quickly.

    The cause of the fire is under investigation.
