CAL FIRE says the fire burning west of Paso Robles off Chimney Rock Road that started as a controlled burn has now charred about 45 acres.
In a joint effort yesterday, the land owner and CAL FIRE crews had started burn piles. Control lines spanning 200 acres were also cut.
On Tuesday, the burn piles spread. The land owner and CAL FIRE had originally planned a controlled burn within the 200 acres, just not for Tuesday. The land owner called the CAL FIRE station to report the fire was burning out of control.
CAL FIRE says the fire is not out of control, because control lines were previously cut. Firefighters anticipate allowing 100 acres of the 200 acre planned project to burn.
More than 75 firefighters are battling the flames.
