Mesa Fire 85 Percent Contained After Burning 205 Acres

A brush fire that broke out between El Capitan Reservoir and San Diego Country Estates was 85 percent contained today, according to the U.S. Forest Service.

The blaze, which broke out around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, burned 205 acres, said Wende Cornelius of the USFS.

The acreage was previously estimated at 100. The revised figure was the result of a GPS survey, Cornelius said.

No one was hurt in the fire and no structures were damaged, she said.

The cause was still under investigation.
