A grass fire broke out on Oso Flaco Lake Road just east of Highway 1 Monday afternoon, burning about five acres.
A Cal Fire spokesman said the fire was first reported at 3:17 p.m. and has since spread at a “moderate to rapid” rate due to wind.
As of 4:15 p.m., seven Cal Fire engines were at the scene, as well as two air tankers, a helicopter, a bulldozer and two hand crews to clear brush. Four more fire engines were en route.
No structures are currently threatened, and no injuries have been reported.
More information will be posted here as it becomes available.
