Cal Fire and the San Luis Obispo County Fire Department continue to battle the Calf Fire.
The fire started around 11:30 Monday morning.
The fire has burned approximately 640 acres and is now 20% contained.
Cal Fire is saying that there are no structure threatened at this time and there have been no reports of any casualties.
Air support has been grounded for the night and is expected to be back Tuesday morning at 8:00 am weather permitting.
Fire officials say the evacuation order will remain in effect until Tuesday morning. Fire Commanders will re-evaluate the fire situation in the morning.
Although the fire is located in very rough terrain making access difficult for firefighters, Fire Commanders say they are "cautiously optimistic to be able to hold the fire lines."
An evacuation shelter has been set up by the American Red Cross at Santa Margarita Elementary School.
The Horse Emergency Evacuation Team has also set up facilities at the Templeton which is located in the 200 block of North Main Street .
