SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - Firefighters from San Luis Obispo City Fire contained a fire burning in a mix of vegetation and human-made materials, including tires and trash, Friday morning.
The fire was reported just before 2 a.m. behind a commercial building at 46 Prado Road. Crews arrived and quickly knocked down the flames, preventing it from spreading to nearby structures. SLO City Fire officials say all the debris made this fire harder to put out. One vehicle was burned.
No injuries were reported. A SLO City Firefighter was rescued after falling about 10 feet into a ravine. Poor visibility from the smoke is being pointed to as a reason for the fall.
The fire burned about a quarter acre and the cause is under investigation.
