Motorists tried to stop a small brush fire from spreading along Highway 67 north of Lakeside Thursday afternoon.  The fire broke out along the highway south of Scripps Poway Parkway. Motorists using blankets and jackets tried to put out the initial flames but fire fighters were there quickly and we able to put out the fire in a short time.  No reports of injuries and the cause is under investigation.
