City News Service

TEMECULA (CNS) – A brush fire erupted Tuesday on ranch property just east of Temecula, scorching roughly three acres before crews stopped it.

The non-injury blaze was reported about 3:20 p.m. in the area of De Portola and Anza roads, near the California Ranch Company, a horse training facility, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

Multiple engine crews were sent to the location and encountered flames moving at a moderate rate in “light flashy fuels.”

Two Cal Fire air tankers and two water-dropping helicopters were called in to assist in the firefight, enabling crews to stop the forward rate of spread just after 4 p.m., according to officials at the scene.

One residence near the fire was evacuated as a precaution, though there was no indication the property was damaged. There were no reports of injuries to horses or other animals.

The tankers cleared the area at 4 p.m.

The cause of the fire was not immediately known.
