A vegetation fire in a remote area near Aguanga east of Temecula burned approximately 28 acres Saturday afternoon as firefighters battled the blaze on the ground and from the air. The fire was contained by 5:35 p.m. and no injuries were reported.
The fire was reported just after 2:30 p.m. three miles east of Humphreys Lane, and first responders found an RV fully engulfed in flames, according to fire authorities. Approximately 5 acres of medium to heavy vegetation burned, fueled by westerly winds, according to Jody Hagemann of the Riverside County Fire Department.
Two helicopters, including one from San Diego County, assisted in fighting the fire, and power lines in the area were down, according to Hagemann.
Other responding agencies include Cal Fire Riverside and San Diego, the Highway Patrol and the Murrieta Fire Department.
Ground resources were committed through the night with a day assignment planned for Sunday, according to Hagemann.
There were no reports of structural damage.
