Cal Fire crews extinguished a 94-acre vegetation fire east of Cayucos on Tuesday that was caused by power lines swinging and sparking in high winds.
The “Creek Fire,” as it was called, was located in a rural area about one mile east of Highway 1 near Old Creek Road, with the closest cross street Montecito Road.
No structures were threatened and no injuries reported.
The fire was first reported at 3:06 a.m., and by sunrise there were approximately 100 firefighters on the ground. An air attack also was ordered at sunrise, Cal Fire spokeswoman Tina Rose said.
Never miss a local story.
The fire was contained around 11:30 a.m. and extinguished around 3 p.m., Rose said.
“There were high winds causing power lines to slap together and spark, which can ignite the dry grass,” Rose said.
