August 23, 2015 (Borrego Springs)--A fire in Borrego Springs over the weekend serves as a remind that in extreme heat, it’s wise not to leave reflective materials around your home.

The reflection of sunlight shining through a glass bottle ignited a couch and trash outside a home on Palm Canyon Drive shortly before noon on Saturday.

Fortunately, the Borrego Sun reports, firefighters quickly doused the blaze.
