[ARCHIVED] Paso Robles Fire - Responds to Multiple Fires

Franklin Air Attack

On Friday September 10, Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services responded to multiple fires within the City of Paso Robles.

The first fire was reported at 3:15 p.m. as a possible structure fire in the 1600 block of Via Rosa. Upon arrival responding units found a fence and pool equipment on fire due to an electrical malfunction of the pool equipment. The fire melted the side of the above ground pool, which caused minor flooding in the yard of an adjacent property. 

The second fire was reported at 4:12 p.m. as a utility trailer on fire in the 1900 block of Creston Rd. The vehicle and trailer were located on Via Ramona and the fire was quickly extinguished by Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services personnel.

 At 4:14 p.m. Paso Robles Police and Fire Dispatch Center along with the Cal Fire Emergency Command Center received calls for multiple vegetation fires in the 2200 block of Creston Rd. Fire units from Paso Robles and SLO County Fire / Cal Fire responded and found four separate fires burning along Creston Road. The fires burned a total of 28.3 acres with 26.94 acres within the City limits and 1.36 acres within the State Responsibility Area of SLO County / Cal Fire.

Three engines, one water tender, and one battalion chief from Paso Robles responded. Under the City of Paso Robles Automatic Aid and Mutual Threat Zone Agreements with SLO County / Cal Fire, a significant augmentation of fire resources responded to the incident. Five fire engines, two battalion chiefs, one prevention officer, one water tender, one transport/dozer, one air attack, two air tankers, and three hand crews from CAL FIRE/SLO County responded.

The vegetation fires were fully controlled at 7:42 p.m. on 9/10/21, with no damage to any structures and no injuries to firefighters or civilians. The cause of the vegetation fires were determined to be from the previously mentioned utility trailer fire, travelling westbound on Creston Rd. 

Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services would like to remind residents that the vegetation is critically dry and the threat of wildfire remains very high. Please remain vigilant to prevent “One Less Spark.”
