A fire burned about a quarter-acre of brush near Poway in Scripps Ranch Monday.
The fire off Big Canyon Lane near Cobble Creek Lane was reported about 6 p.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
Fire crews were initially concerned because the fire was burning down a hill, but by about 6:40 p.m. had stopped it from spreading further, a San Diego Fire-Rescue Department dispatcher said.
No structures were threatened, she said.
Fire crews would remain on scene to mop up, the dispatcher said.
