Light Staff

A grass fire Monday evening on a Bird Rock hillside was put out before any structures were seriously threatened, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesman Maurice Luque.

Although some neighbors had heard that homes were involved, he said the fire was contained to the hillside near Linda Rosa Avenue and La Jolla Linda Corona

Helicopters made several water drops on the fire, a resident reported.

By 8 p.m. units were being released from the fire, which was south of a spot where homes were threatened on July 4th weekend.
