Smoke can be seen rising above a Point Loma apartment complex and Interstate 8 as a fire burns in the brush near it.
The fire was reported at 5:11 p.m. near the Mariner's Cove apartments at 4336 W. Point Loma Boulevard.
Flames created a large plume of smoke in the area, but firefighters were able to make quick work of it. No evacuations are being ordered and no one was injured.
There is no word on a possible cause.
