As a 300-acre wildfire in the Pala area that may have been sparked by a vehicle crash prompted authorities to issue an evacuation order on Monday afternoon, another fire was reported off of Wildcat Canyon and San Vicente Road near Ramona.

A Calfire spokeswoman reported just before 4 p.m. that the fire was moving northeast toward the San Diego Country Estates and that structures are threatened. The fire was reported at 3:07 and the cause is under investigation. Wildcat Canyon is closed up near the fire scene.

On the Pala Temecula fire, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department used a reverse 911 system to deliver the evacuation message to 37 phone numbers in the vicinity of Rancho Heights and Magee roads several hours into the firefighting effort.

That fire broke out about 10:35 a.m. near the intersection of Pala Temecula and Moro roads, according to Cal Fire Capt. Mike Mohler. About 300 firefighters were battling the blaze, with zero containment by mid- afternoon, he said, though no structures had been damaged nor injuries reported as of 3:45
p.m.

The California Highway Patrol reported on its website that a Toyota Camry hit a pole and caught fire about 10:30 a.m. near the intersection of Pala Temecula and Moro roads, but the official cause of the wildfire remained under investigation.

Pala Temecula Road was closed from Pala Mission Road to Moro Road, the CHP reported.
