San Diego fire crews, assisted by two water-dropping helicopters, were working to extinguish a fire that broke out along the San Diego River in the Mission Valley area Sunday morning, authorities said.

The fire was reported shortly after 10:30 a.m. in the riverbed near Friars Street and Morena Avenue, San Diego Fire-Rescue officials said. No buildings were threatened and no evacuation was ordered.

About 40 firefighters responded to the blaze, including two helicopters, two brush rigs, four engines and a plumber, according to an online fire log. The first units arrived at the scene around 10:42 am

Just after 11 a.m., officials said the fire had charred about a quarter acre of brush and was spreading slowly. Crews were expected to remain on the fire for at least two hours, said Battalion Chief Alan Arolando.
