The Lookout Fire is burning in the same area where the deadly Painted Cave Fire destroyed more than 400 homes back in 1990.
It broke out on a hot, dry and windy day, just like the weather has been on the Central Coast lately.
In just three hours, the fire would burn 5,000 acres.
A 37-year-old woman was killed.
It turned out a known arsonist set the fire, but no criminal charges were ever filed.
More than $250,000,000 in property was destroyed in the Painted Cave Fire.
