Fire destroys rural Paso Robles home at hilltop vineyard
Update: 6:35 p.m.
Two rural Paso Robles residents are without a place to live after a fire destroyed their home Wednesday evening.
Cal Fire spokesman Chris Elms said the residents were taken to the hospital, at least one with minor injuries. The two-story house was “pretty much completely destroyed” by the fire, Elms said.
Crews from throughout San Luis Obispo County — including six fire engines and two water tenders — will be working for at least the next two hours to put out hot spots and ensure the fire is out.
Elms said the American Red Cross of Central California will help the residents during their transition.
Update: 5:15 p.m.
Cal Fire tweeted that the fire is contained to the structure.
Crews from Templeton Fire are also helping to battle the flames.
Firefighters are responding to a fully involved residential structure fire near Nacimiento Lake Drive and Valley Quail Place in Paso Robles.
Cal Fire spokesman Chris Elms said firefighters from Cal Fire, San Luis Obispo County Fire Department and Paso Robles Fire Department were responding to the fire at a 3,000-square-foot home about 4 p.m. Wednesday.
