WARNER SPRINGS (AP) — A 2,000-acre wildfire ignited by lightning in rural northern San Diego County has been contained.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said firefighters fully surrounded the fire Sunday evening.

The fire is burning in the highlands northeast of the community of Warner Springs, about 50 miles northeast of downtown San Diego.

More than 800 firefighters and six air tankers were aided by rain from a thunderstorm on Saturday.

Lightning strikes ignited several small fires in the Palomar and Cuyamaca mountains, but they were all small in size.
