Two firefighters were injured in a vegetation fire that broke out Tuesday east of Arroyo Grande, which has burned 387 acres and is 85% contained, according to Cal Fire officials on Friday.
The fire was initially reported at 11:57 a.m. on Tuesday, near Mary Hall and Husana roads, and grew to more than 300 by Wednesday, according to Cal Fire.
Cal Fire officials said on Wednesday that investigators determined it was a catalytic converter that sparked the blaze. No further information was provided.
Information on the extent of the firefighters’ injuries was not provided, but according to Cal Fire one was from Cal Fire, and the other was a California Conservation Corps firefighter. No structures have been damaged in the fire.
Officials said that personnel are in the process of establishing control lines and containment has been difficult due to the steep and rugged areas where the fire is burning, although crews continue to work around the clock.
