San Marcos Fire Department responds to a small vegetation fire
At approximately 9 am on Friday, Aug. 17, the San Marcos Fire Department responded to a small vegetation near 2430 S. Rancho Santa Fe Road. Crews contained the blaze to a 50 by 50-foot area and extinguished the fire by approximately 10 am.
While brief evacuations were issued out of an abundance of caution, no injuries or significant damage has been reported. The fire’s cause is currently under investigation; there have been unconfirmed reports of a discarded cigarette thrown from a vehicle according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.
Eastbound S. Rancho Santa Fe Road at Las Flores Drive will be closed until noon so that the Fire Department can clear partially burned trees and mop up the area.
This fire serves as a critical reminder of the importance of wildfire preparedness. All homeowners must maintain 150 feet of defensible space and residents should have an emergency plan in place.
