Cal Fire crews have stopped the spread of a 100-acre vegetation fire burning east of Cayucos.

At 10:15 a.m., the fire was 30 percent contained, with no structures threatened and no injuries reported.

The fire, which is being called the “Creek Fire,” is located near Old Creek Road, with the closest cross-street Montecito Road. 

“As the bird flies, it is about one mile east of Highway 1,” said Cal Fire spokeswoman Tina Rose. Firefighters can only reach it by hiking into the area.

The fire was first reported at 3:06 a.m., and by sunrise there were approximately 100 firefighters on the ground, Rose said.

An air attack was ordered at sunrise.
