A vehicle caught fire Tuesday and quickly spread to surrounding brush in Lake Elsinore before firefighters were able to gain the upper hand.

The non-injury blaze was reported at 8:32 a.m. in the 25000 block of Spring Street and contained a half-hour later, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

Multiple engine crews responded to a backyard where a vehicle fire had ignited a patch of vegetation measuring roughly 50 feet by 50 feet.

No structure damage was reported.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
