Julian brush fire contained

JULIAN (CNS) – Crews contained a 4.5-acre brush fire in Julian early Tuesday amid strong Santa Ana winds and extremely dry conditions, authorities said.

The Wynola Fire broke out off Wynola Road around 11:30 p.m. Monday, according to Cal Fire.

About 4 a.m., the state firefighting agency reported that the blaze was fully contained and crews would remain on scene for several more hours.

There were no immediate reports of injury or structure losses.

The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning for inland valley and mountains areas, including Julian, until 6 p.m. Wednesday, saying current dry, windy conditions could contribute to extreme fire behavior. A red flag warning is the Weather Service’s most serious fire-related warning.
