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.
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.
