Firefighters responded to a call for a vegetation fire in the Salinas Riverbed in Paso Robles on Tuesday.

The report came in shortly after 3 p.m.

The fire was said to be burning in the riverbed behind Kohl's, which is located near the intersection of Niblick and S. River roads.

The riverbed has been the scene of dozens of fires this year. In July, the city declared a public safety emergency, allowing the fire department to clear brush to create a fire break.

This is a developing story and will be updated with new information as it becomes available.
