Firefighters battling a brush fire that broke out in Lake Morena on Monday afternoon stopped its forward progress in less than two hours, officials said.

Crews with Cal Fire San Diego and Cleveland National Forest responded to the blaze — dubbed the "Cameron Fire" — at 2373 Cameron Truck Trail just before 1:30 p.m.

The fire, which was in light brush with a slow-to-moderate rate of spread, reached 7 to 10 acres at one point. Additional resources were ordered, but Cal Fire said its crews were able to stop the fire at 5.28 acres just before 3 p.m.

No civilians or firefighters were hurt, fire officials said. Cal Fire said five outbuildings were destroyed by the flames.
