A brush fire burned approximately one acre of grass in a Lincoln Park neighborhood Sunday morning, San Diego fire officials said.

The blaze was reported around 10:35 a.m. on South Willie James Jones Avenue, near Franklin Avenue and Ocean View Boulevard. Fire officials said a few surrounding structures were threatened, and nearly one acre of brush had burned.

The site of the fire is near Lincoln High School. A resident in the area told NBC 7 he saw smoke and heard fire engines. He was afraid the fire might spread to his yard, as he live between the site of the blaze and the high school.

By 10:52 a.m., firefighters had knocked down the fire. Crews remained in the area to mop up hotspots.

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