A small vegetation fire was contained in San Luis Obispo Tuesday.

It reportedly broke out after 11:30 a.m. on Foothill Boulevard across from Blue Granite Lane near Bishop Peak.

CAL FIRE SLO said shortly before noon the fire burned a 15x15-foot spot.

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office says deputies with its rural crimes unit and a sergeant were leaving a press conference around the same time the fire was reported and were able to respond quickly to help put out the flames along the side of the road and direct traffic.
