Small Brush Fire Races Uphill in Escondido, Billowing Smoke: SDFD

A small brush fire raced uphill, billowing smoke near Bandy Canyon and San Pasqual Valley Road Monday, San Diego Fire-Rescue officials confirmed.

Just before 3:25 p.m., the blaze had spread to cover roughly 10 acres, with a slow rate of spread, Cal Fire spokesman Issac Sanchez said. The fire is 40 percent contained. 

There is an abundance of dry brush in the area, fueling the fire, near State Route 78.

The flames sparked around 1:30 p.m., said SDFD officials. There is currently no threat to homes or buildings in the area.
