Crews were battling a brush fire that's burning northeast of Escondido on Thanksgiving afternoon, officials said.
The fire started at about 2:30 p.m. in the 2000 block of La Honda Drive, just north of Dixon Lake. It's estimated to have burned 3 acres, Escondido fire officials said.
Crews have dropped water and retardant from above to slow the rate of spread. By 3:45 p.m., crews had stopped the forward rate of spread.
There is no immediate threat to structures and no evacuations have been ordered.
The fire was brought under control hours later.
