According to 10News , Fire crews are responding to a fire in the San Pasqual Valley just days after several other fires broke out in the same area. 

According to reports, the fire broke out on the 21000 block of San Pasqual Road around 3 p.m. near Hungry Hawk Vineyards. 

The blaze comes just days after the Rangeland Fire scorched 250 acres on the same hillside already blackened by the Pasqual Fire that tore through the area in late July.

A source told 10News  that the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, which is situated roughly five minutes away from where the fire started, is prepared to evacuate if the fire inches too close.
