     Firefighters worked fast to stop the spread of a fire in a Vista building Sunday morning.

    The two-alarm fire was first reported around 9:15 a.m. near Watson Way and Sycamore Avenue.

    Fire officials said an abandoned structure became engulfed in flames, which soon spread to nearby vegetation. They contained the fire in about an hour.

    No other buildings were burned, and there are no injury reports at this time.

    Firefighters are on high alert Sunday after the National Weather Service issued a high wind warning until 5 p.m. across San Diego County’s valleys and mountains.

    That, combined with warm temperatures, is a good recipe for a large fire.

    Strong winds and rough terrain are making it harder for other fire crews to get a handle on a roughly 75-acre brush fire burning near Pine Valley.
