Brush fire burns longer than expected

Posted: Updated:

HOLTVILLE, CA (13 On Your Side) - The brush fire near the border, south of the All-American Canal, continues to burn longer than expected.

As 13 On Your Side first reported, the Bureau of Land Management was hoping to have the blaze completely out by today. However, crews remain on site.

Firefighters do have a perimeter around the fire - preventing it from spreading. But it is still burning.

The blaze charred nearly 300 acres. One firefighter has been injured and is recovering at the hospital.
