CAL FIRE officials say more than 350 fire personnel are still battling a 2,700 acre wildland fire near Parkfield that started around 11:30 a.m. Monday.

The fire sparked near Turkey Flat and Cholame Roads. By Tuesday, 28 engines, 14 hand crews, four bulldozers and three water tenders from fire departments in several different counties had been called in to help fight the flames. There was little activity overnight Monday because of lower temperatures and decreased winds, CAL FIRE officials said.

The fire was 30 percent contained Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. The cause is under investigation.
