Tecate smoke now affecting San Diego

(Tecate fire is moving west)….At last report, the fire had burned over 600 acres.

Officials Wednesday said the winds had shifted and smoke and ash was being blown into San Diego communities. Monday afternoon and Tuesday, Imperial County experienced layers of smoke from the fire. Fiore officials in Mexico had requested assistance from Cal Fire, but later the request was called off. Cal Fire says they are standing by, anyway. The fire started south of Tecate, near the toll road to Tijuana. How it started is still under investigation. Officials in Mexico say the brush fire is not threatening any people or homes.
