Huasna Fire containment increases slightly

Posted: Updated:

CAL FIRE says the Huasna Fire that broke out on Wednesday is now 87 percent contained. 

The fire started at around 1:40 p.m. on a ranch off of Huasna Townsite Road in Huasna, east of Arroyo Grande. It has burned 244 acres.

Fire officials say crews have been busy putting out hot spots and building containment lines, which is difficult because of the steep terrain. They've also been encountering a lot of downed and burned out large oak trees.

Full containment of the fire is expected by 8 p.m. on Sunday.

The cause is under investigation.
