Saturday morning, saw fire crews tackling a secondary vegetation fire on Palomar Mountain, as the smoke became visible from State Route 79. Requesting assistance from air tankers due to the difficult terrain, fire crews arrived to attack the blaze just before 10:50 a.m.

Although the site is not easily accessible by foot, as of 6:00 p.m., the fire was 80 percent surrounded and no evacuations have been ordered and no structures are threatened at this time.
