Firefighters successfully contained a house fire in Fallbrook that spread to nearby brush early Friday morning.
The structure fire was reported sometime before 6 a.m. at a home on the 40000 block of Sandia Creek. There, heavy smoke could be seen emitting from the house as crews battled the blaze.
SkyRanger 7 was over the inferno and captured aerial footage of thick plumes of white smoke coming from the scene.
The North County Fire Protection District described the blaze as a "fully-involved residential fire" that "extended into the vegetation."
The fire was near Sandia Creek Ranch and as a precaution, sheriff's deputies evacuated about 50 horses.
As of 11 a.m., both the structure and vegetation fires were fully contained. Firefighters halted the blaze at 1/4 acre, according to Cal Fire San Diego.
Reports of any injuries were not immediately available. It is unclear what caused the fire.
