The fire was caused by a car accident and the car caught on fire. The fire quickly spread east with a good breeze. It crested the ridge just before the Honey Springs Ranch Barn. The fire department along with great and rapid air support suppressed the fire quickly. The Border Patrol and Sheriff were also very involved. Hopefully no one was injured in the accident or fire. ... They are mopping up still but we are extremely thankful for our wonderful fire department. Also, thanks for reporting these important alerts.

Congratulations to DV'er Mark Payne whose photo of the helicopter response to the Honey Fire (above) was published with an accompanying article by East County Magazine:
Look carefully and you can see lines of firefighters to the left and right of burn area.
Air support included helicopters, tankers, and spotter plane.
