MENIFEE (CNS) - A grass fire that erupted on Monday, July 8 in a field at a Menifee intersection scorched about 22 acres before it was knocked down.

The non-injury blaze was reported at 10:35 a.m. in the area of Domenigoni Parkway and Lindenberger Road, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

A dozen engine crews and a truck company -- numbering roughly 40 personnel -- were sent to the location and encountered flames burning in open space, not in the vicinity of houses.

Firefighters encircled the slow-moving blaze within an hour, and it was declared 100 percent contained by 11:30 a.m.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
