Wildfire chars 1,500 acres in San Luis Obispo County

Sunday, August 22, 2010

The fire broke Saturday afternoon and quickly grew to about 15,000 acres near the Los Padres National Forest.

Cal-Fire authorities say several structures were threatened by the blaze but are now out of danger.

Cal-Fire called in fire engines, helicopters, and air tankers from multiple agencies including firefighters from the Central Valley.

Earlier Saturday evening, fire crews from the Mariposa-Merced and Madera units joined strike teams from Fresno and Tulare counties before heading to the fire lines.
