Air resources continued to play a major role in containing the Gate Fire burning in San Diego County since Saturday.
The fire grew to 1,500 acres by Sunday morning, though crews made progress overnight, aided by cooler temperatures and higher humidity levels, Cal Fire reported. No structures have been damaged, and no injuries were reported.
