SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) — California firefighters are battling a wildfire that has already burned nearly 8 square miles of grassland on a westward run from a Kern County oil field to a remote area of eastern San Luis Obispo County.
Five water-dropping helicopters are supporting 337 firefighters on the ground. There are no injuries and one structure has been destroyed.
The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said Monday morning that 5,068 acres have burned since the fire started at 10:15 a.m. Sunday.
The blaze is 20 percent contained.
The state agency says the blaze started in the McDonald-Anticline Oil Field and moved west into San Luis Obispo County’s Temblor Range, some 20 miles southwest of Lost Hills.
