SAN MIGUEL, Calif- CAL FIRE Crews are still putting out a wildfire that reached up to 70 acres upon containment in San Miguel.
The fire sparked up around 12:40 p.m., Monday afternoon.
San Luis Obispo and San Benito-Monterey CAL FIRE Units responded with assistance from San Luis Obispo County Fire Department and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).
Two county engines, five CAL FIRE engines, one air tactical, three air tankers, one helicopter, one strike team of CDCR hand crews, two water tenders, two bull dozers, and two battalion chiefs were assigned to the incident.
The fire was contained at 70 acres and the cause of the fire has been determined as a metal disc striking a rock while a rancher mowed his field, per CAL FIRE investigator Richard Lopez.
CAL FIRE would like to commend the property owner on the Defensible Space provided around the perimeter of the field, as firefighters say this assisted with controlling fire spread.
