Lakeside Brush Fire Prompts Sig Alert

 A one-acre brush fire has limited traffic on a major road running through Lakeside. 

The California Highway Patrol issued a Sig Alert for Wildcat Canyon Road just south of Featherstone Road as fire crews responded to the blaze just before 2 p.m. Saturday.

Traffic was shut down in both directions, but officials have since opened one lane. 

The fire was extinguished around 3 p.m., but officers were keeping lanes blocked until all the hot spots were mopped up, according to the CHP traffic incident page.

San Diego County is under a fire weather warning, which will be upgraded to a red flag warning on Sunday morning.
