A fire that broke out Wednesday in a field on the east end of Menifee charred roughly two acres before crews got it partially contained.

The non-injury blaze was reported at 3:05 p.m. in the area of Southshore Drive and Holland Road, near the Wilderness Lakes RV Campground, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

The agency said multiple engine crews were sent to the location and encountered flames burning at a moderate rate through heavy vegetation amid southwest winds.

No homes or other structures were threatened.

Firefighters were able to establish tentative containment lines around most of the brusher by 3:30 p.m., according to reports from the scene.

No Cal Fire aircraft were requested.

The cause of the fire was not immediately known.
