Original story:

Fire crews were working to snuff out a roughly 5-acre blaze in Paso Robles on Thursday night, according to Cal Fire.

The fire is believed to have started in a workshop on the 2700 block of Adelaida Road before spreading to nearby vegetation, Cal Fire Capt. Brent Lee said.

Lee said Cal Fire had dispatched six hand crews, 10 engines, two bulldozers and two water tankers to the fire, which was called in at 7:48 p.m.

No other structures were believed to be in danger, and no injuries had been reported as of 10:50 p.m., Lee said.

A soft road closure was put in place near Adelaida Road and Mountain Springs Road, allowing only residents to pass; a hard closure to all traffic was enacted at 2411 Mountain Springs Road and beyond, Lee said.
