Vegetation fire erupts in Miramar, threatening nearby homes

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – There were major fire concerns in Miramar Ranch as a fire broke out on a hillside around 2:19 pm on Thursday.

It started to feel a lot like summer across parts of San Diego County Thursday, with temperatures expected to push triple-digits in some areas into Friday.

The fire was dangerously close to several homes on top of the hill.

With high temperatures and dry winds, fire teams were on the team ready to aggressively attack the blaze.

As of 4:00 pm the fire was contained and mostly put out, saving the homes alongside the hill.
