SAN DIEGO (AP) - Ground crews with air support are surrounding a stubborn wildfire that has burned through 5,321 acres of grass and brush in rural San Diego County.
CalFire spokeswoman Roxanne Provaznik says the blaze near Shelter Valley is burning away from the town of Julian in steep, rocky terrain. It is 90 percent contained Sunday.
More than 900 state and federal firefighters are fighting the fire along with two air tankers and seven helicopters.
No structures are threatened.
Shelter Valley is in an unincorporated area of the county, 12 miles east of Julian within the boundaries of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
The fire broke out Thursday in the same area where a wildfire scorched more than 2,000 acres last year.
