On Monday, June 22, 2020, at 1:17 am, firefighters from the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District responded to the report of a vegetation fire in the 8000 block of Harmony Grove Road. The first engine to arrive on scene encountered flames burning in light fuels along the road and quickly made an initial attack on the fire. A second engine arrived shortly thereafter and worked to extinguish the flames on the other edge of the fire. Forward progress was stopped at approximately 100’ by 50’ with no structures damaged and no injuries reported.
Crews remained on scene to establish a perimeter and ensure there were no hot spots. Cal Fire firefighters assisted with the mop up efforts. A Cal Fire prevention officer also assisted with investigating the cause of the incident, which has yet to be determined.
