August 19, 2016 (LA JOLLA) A two acre fire momentarily threatened structures in University City, though no evacuation orders were issued. This was in a canyon under Nobel and Townce Center Drives, which has a few apartment complexes on the rim. The fire started around 12:20 but was declared knocked down by San Diego Fire and Rescue (SDFD) by 1:20, with crews remaining doing mop up.

It is hot, dry and windy, even near the coast, which also means we are still under Red Flag conditions, which is expected to expire later tonight. Though it was been extended twice this week.

At one point the response included air assets from not just SDFD, but also the Sherifs, who sent Chopper 10, but it was cancelled as it was no longer needed before it reached the scene. There were units from North County and the Miramar that also responded. There are units that have already been released, but they expect to do extensive mop up.

At this point the SDFD has investigations en route, for this 2 acre fire.

Brush fire in UC stopped at 2 acres. 60 fire personnel on scene. Investigators en route.
