PASO ROBLES, CA – At approximately 12:39 p.m. on Tuesday July 26, Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services was dispatched to the area south of Niblick Bridge in the Salinas Riverbed for a reported vegetation fire.

The first arriving unit reported approximately ¼ acre fire burning within the Salinas Riverbed, to the west of Kohl’s. Crews were able to quickly contain the fire at 1.1 acres because of the grazing fuel abatement work that had been recently completed.

Three fire engines and two Chief Officers from Paso Robles responded. Under the City's Automatic Aid Agreement, four fire engines, one bulldozer, one hand crews, one Battalion Chief, one air attack plane from Cal Fire/SLO County Fire, and one fire engine from Atascadero Fire responded. The exact cause of the fire is still under investigation but originated adjacent to a homeless encampment.
