One firefighter sustained minor injuries Friday night as crews with the San Luis Obispo Fire Department worked to knock down a large residential fire in San Luis Obispo.

According to SLO City Fire officials, crews received initial reports of the residential fire along Prado Road shortly before 11 p.m. Friday.

Fire officials said in a tweet that a warming fire at a nearby homeless encampment spread to the building, causing the residential fire.

The firefighter that sustained minor injuries was treated and released at the scene, according to fire officials.

SLO City Fire officials said fire crews will continue to patrol the area for hot spots Saturday due to the dense fire load at the property.
