A fire brush fire scorched one acre in Escondido Saturday, officials confirmed.

The blaze began just one block away from a fire station around 2 p.m., burning brush in an open yard close to a residential area in the 1000 block of Ball Avenue.

The fire burned between five homes, but none of the home were damaged. A few fences and backyard sheds sustained some burn damages.

Despite hot and breezy conditions, firefighters were able to quickly get a handle on the fire and prevent it from spreading to surrounding houses.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
