Fire crews on the way to help fight the Bernardo Fire were dispatched to two small fires north of Escondido.

Officials said two small fires broke out along Champagne Boulevard, along an embankment east of Interstate 15 around 7 a.m.

The crews jumped on the fire and kept it from spreading further than 100 feet in each direction.

Firefighters told NBC 7 it was one of those things that had the potential to be a lot worse because of the fuel in the area.
