Crews find body after brush fire in National City

Posted: Updated:

NATIONAL CITY (CNS) – A body was discovered in the aftermath of a brush fire Wednesday in a freeway median near Sweetwater County Park, officials said.

It took ground and airborne crews about an hour Wednesday to subdue the fire, which blackened roughly an acre alongside Interstate 805 and State Route 54.

Personnel from the National City, San Diego and Chula Vista fire departments attacked the flames, which burned through bamboo and other foliage growing 12 feet tall or higher, said Jim Garcia, deputy chief of the latter agency.

An investigation is underway.
