Fire burns along Highway 101 in Pismo Beach

CAL FIRE says two acres of brush were burned along Highway 101 in the Five Cities area Tuesday afternoon.

The fire broke out just before 2:30 pm north of Oak Park Boulevard between the highway and the Orchard Supply Hardware shopping center.

Five Cities Fire Chief Mike Hubert first spotted the fire, contacted dispatchers and called for a first alarm.

Firefighters were able to get the fire under control in about an hour.

Five Cities Fire officials say there were signs of an encampment in a wooded area near the highway, but it has not been determined whether that had anything to do with the fire. Its cause remains under investigation.
