Posted: Updated:

UPDATE 3:45 a.m. Wednesday, June 21

Just before 2:00 a.m. Wednesday, CAL FIRE SLO reported the Halter Fire fully contained after burning a quarter acre in rural Paso Robles. 

Crews spent about an hour extinguishing hot spots before being released. 


CAL FIRE SLO battled a brush fire late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning in rural Paso Robles.

Firefighters headed to Adelaida Road near Vineyard Drive around 11 p.m. They're calling it the Halter Fire.

The first crews on the scene reported power lines down across the road. There were two fires, they said, and one was quickly contained.

PG&E arrived on scene before midnight to deactivate the lines and make the area safe for firefighters to go in and get to work.

CAL FIRE SLO Public Information Officer Chris Elms said about a quarter-acre of brush and tree branches were burning in a wildland area between vineyards.

The fire was not threatening any structures as of midnight. Elms said the fire activity was minimal and there was no wind to fuel the flames.

This is a developing story. KSBY News will post more details on the firefight here overnight.
