Firefighters contained a fire that broke out Sunday, Sept. 6, in a field near homes in Fallbrook.

The blaze was reported at 11:51 p.m. in an area near Los Alisos Drive and Live Oak Park Road, according to information from Capt. John Choi of the North County Fire Protection District.

According to Choi, fire crews arrived on scene shortly after the report came in and stopped the forward spread of the fire, which was initially estimated to be about a quarter acre in size before being revised upward to about half an acre.

Some area structures were threatened before firefighters got the blaze under control, Choi said.

No injuries were reported.

Choi said around 12:20 p.m. that crews were expected to remain at the scene for another 60 to 90 minutes.
