Fire Burning North of Lakeside....

Barona Mesa: Crews with the USFS are working a fire in the Four Corners area of the San Diego River bottom. The fire has consumed about 80 acres and is burning in a remote location. Lakeside has sent Engine 2 (Eucalyptus Hills) to the Barona Mesa area as part of a Heartland "Structural Protection" Strike Team.

Currently the fire continues to hold at about 80 acres. After an aggressive attack by USFS and CalFire air/ground crews the fire has been contained. Ground crews worked all day, and into the night, to finish containment efforts.

Concerned citizens can call 619-590-3160 for information.
