Firefighters Douse Small Brush Fire in Tijuana River Valley

Helicopter drops aid in quickly putting out the blaze near the border.


With the aid of a helicopter to make water drops, San Diego firefighters were able to extinguish a canyon brush fire that broke out early Thursday evening near the border with Mexico.

The small blaze in the canyon near the intersection of Hollister Street and Monument Road did not threaten homes, but the location near a riverbed made it difficult for firefighters to gain access to the area.

The fire was reported shortly after 6 p.m.

If so It is just another example of the cost to the tax payer because of the lack of immigration enforcement, along with welfare, housing subsidys, schooling, medical care and on and on ! We Need it gain back control of our borders or they wil,l in time be so badly erroded that they might as well not be there, We are rapidly approching that state now and I don't think therte is much of a chance of help from Washington.
