June 22, 2015
The 1,800 acres Park Hill Fire destroyed two homes, four mobile homes, two RVs used as primary residence, 10 outbuildings and seven vehicles including one boat and trailer. PG&E continues to repair burned poles and lines.
Current cost estimate for the fire is 2.7 million. The cause of the fire was carbon buildup from an unknown vehicle exhaust system. One civilian was injured.
At this time, only residents are permitted in the fire area. San Luis Obispo County Sheriff deputies and California Highway Patrol will continue to patrol the area and firefighters will remain at the fire until full containment and control.
“Today the firefighters made significant progress in building line and mopping-up the fire. We will be demobilizing many resources tomorrow, making them available for other fires,” said Chief Crawford, incident commander.
