Early this AM we responded to #VegetationFire in the creek bed behind homes on Chuparossa Dr. Despite difficult access crews kept the 1/4 acre fire from spreading to nearby homes. Fire was caused by an escaped illegal fire from a homeless encampment. No injuries reported #SLOCity pic.twitter.com/bOlFHjV0U9— San Luis Obispo City Fire Department (@SLOCityFire) May 12, 2022
